Best Restaurant for Intimate Conversation (2009)
— I brought you here because it's a romantic little bistro where we can talk with one another over escargots, some slices of baguette, a bottle of red wine... plus I thought you would especially enjoy it because you're French.
— I'm from Antigua. Didn't you read my profile?
— Sorry, thought that was in France. Point is, the escargots are tenderly cooked Provençal-style with olive oil, tomatoes, garlic, and basil — the finest in town. And the snapper meunière and lamb chops and duck magret in green peppercorn sauce are fantastic.
— Come here often?
— Heh-heh. I like a gal with a sense of humor. And I like that the décor here makes you feel like you're inside a cozy Parisian café.
— We're sitting outside.
— Well, that's because I love sitting at the tables out here as well; it's as though we're on a quaint Parisian street. Plus they were booked solid inside.
— I can't read the blackboard menu from out here, and I can't see the carte du vin that seems to be written on one of the mirrored walls.
— Think of a French bistro dish and they'll likely have it. Pâté, steak/frites, ratatouille, tarte tatin — almost all entrées are under $20, sides are $3, desserts only $4.
— Thanks for sharing that with me.
— The mostly French wines are also affordable, in the $25 to $50 range. Want a bottle?
— Yes, and some food as well. It's getting late.
— No worry. Buena Vista stays open until midnight, so we still have hours left for intimate conversation.
— When do we begin?
