La Bourse et la Vie is one of our favorite Classic Bistros in Paris. It's a place where you come to celebrate, to bring a date, and to devour one of the best steak-frites in Paris.
In Paris, Spring Book is available at the restaurant (6 rue Bailleul 75001, 01 45 96 05 72) and at the Librairie Gourmande and Colette. . International readers can purchase online and have it signed & shipped – more information here.
At the time, the American chef was unaware that a new restaurant had just opened in Paris bearing the improbable name of Danny Rose Bistrot Americain. Is it possible that the owners of this new place near the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont were unaware of another Daniel Rose in Paris, one who happened to be American and to have one of the most popular restaurants (and web searches) in town? After speaking on the phone with the owners of Danny Rose, the Spring chef Daniel Rose is persuaded that they just liked the Woody Allen film and were completely unaware of his existence. Still, lawyers are involved, since the original D-Rose spent thousands of euros to protect his name and doesn’t want it attached to a place that’s serving “American” specialties like gooseberry-slathered pork ribs.
p.s. is Le Fooding writing about just anything these days? http://www.lefooding.com/restaurant/restaurant-danny-rose-paris.html
Before launching at 5:00 this morning, the PbM crew celebrated the new website with a few hundred glasses at Spring Boutique.
