That's a very attractive storefront.

Ah Bonjour! What a lovely place! I have a thing about restaurants like that, not French but with thr writing on the windows! Have you ever seen the film Fried Green Tomatoes... They put writing on the windows and so whenever I see a picture like that I think of the film! silly I know! Yippee July!

Can't go wrong with a French restaurant! Tres magnifique!

Helen said...

Nice choice. I miss NY sometimes. The food most of all.

tigerfish said...

I don't really like the color red- dunno why. And if it's a red-themed restaurant, what kind of crowds will it attract? *curious*

Karine said...

Ahhh la belle vie :) Very nice facade and interesting name for that restaurant. What I don't like much are "escargots" though ;) Not really my thing. Nice capture.

Nathalie said...

Mmmm, nice post for today!

Todd HellsKitchen said...

I love red. I'd paint my apt red, but I think I would get tired of it... It's nice to see red every once in a while, though...

GMG said...

Escargots, huitres and fruits de mer... great menu!

Sean said...

I actually have eaten at this restaurant, albeit several years ago. I remember it being fine, not exceptional but not terrible. But it is exceptional in the red category!

R&R in The Netherlands said...

They say that the color red is good for the appetite, and this place sure looks appetizing! Bon Appetit!

I see Homemade biscuits on the sign!

Happy Theme Day Ming!
