Le Petit Bistravesty

So… I’m back! In Paris, and also in the blogosphere. I know I’ve been missed.

While I get back into the swing of things, I thought I’d share with you a little discovery I made on my winter vacation. You know how I’m always teasing the French for their ill-conceived attempts at imitating American food? (see here, here, here, and here.) Well, I figure turn about is fair play.

Waiting on line for a feast of all-American food-court fried chicken, I noticed this establishment next door:

Le Petit Bistro

Oh look! A little slice of France, right here in the Providence Place Mall. Quiche, croissants, baguettes — why, apparently they even have a butcher on the premises! But let’s look a little closer…

Mmm… nothing says authentic French cooking like Santa Fe Chicken Ciabatta, followed by a Snickers Pie. Close your eyes, you could almost imagine you’re at your favorite bistro du quartier!

Or, maybe not. I wish I could tell you I ordered the Snickers Pie for research purposes, but really, what would be the point? I stuck with my fried chicken, and was very happy with that decision.
