To get our French fix before catching a matinee of  Julie and Julia (run, don’t walk!), David and I stopped for a light lunch at Monsieur Marcel in the Farmer’s Market on Fairfax.  This gourmet market’s outdoor cafe is a great place to people watch while working your way though a surprisingly large menu of charcuterie, fromage, quiche, etc.  We fell hard for the escargot tower – escargots stuffed into a french baguette with tomato confit, served with a beurre blanc sauce.  “Bon appetit!”

    I second the escargot tower! It’s amazing- I particularly loved that it was such a departure from the traditional A La Bourguignonne preparation. And don’t forget about the leek quiche!
