Une banquette rouge



Le Bistrologue Café at the corner of Boulevard Diderot and Rue Crozatier caught my eye with its red bench on the terrasse. I think that this would make a cozy corner for meeting friends... next week!

All of the café spots will be full of people enjoying the warmer weather of spring. Where we found many empty outdoor chairs and tables in December, we will see a totally different scene in April.

Ah. The sharp eye of Genie finds yet another delightful subject. Wonderful.

Si une banquette est rouge, c'est très bien. Mais, si les lumières sont rouge, . . . Genie n'était pas là. Oui?

Paris, au printemps, c'est une histoire d'amour qui commence. Assieds-toi et regarde. L'amour est partout avec ces couples qui parlent à voix basse, qui se séduisent, ces personnes seules qui attendent leur rendez-vous, les yeux qui se cherchent devant la tasse du café encore fumant...
Bonne journée, Genie, et rêve bien!

You will see a different scene. I can imagine myself emailing you constantly about your wonderful finds in the gorgeous St germain ...I can't wait.

Cette banquette rouge ferait honneur à la collection de Virginia ! :-)
Tu seras à Paris bientôt, quelle chance ! Combien de temps restes-tu ?

Je serai à Paris le dimanche 17 avril. Tu seras encore là ?

This took me back to high school when I worked in the Rexall Drug Store as a soda-jerk making milk shakes, banana splits, coffee, etc. The I graduated into the pharmacy's assistant and counted pills. Your picture brings back good memories.

Virginia said...

debbie in toronto said...

Love that red bench Genie...can't wait to see what you spy when you are over there soon....scope out some neat things for me to see in July !!

Halcyon said...

Love the splash of color!!

Kate said...

You'll have to send us a photo of you on the red bench! PS. Did you see yesterday's NYTimes article on out-of-the-way Paris restaurants? Worth a look.

Peter said...

"Le Bistrologue", not too far from Marche Aligre, if you want to go back! Looking forward to seeing you again, there or elsewhere! :-)

We loved Paris in December. No lines at the museums was a treat! Love this red banquette. Can you imagine if this was in the US? The local fire marshal would never allow a bench to block the doorway like this. Ah, bureaucracy.

Very nice capture. The red booth really pops. Can't wait to experience the cafes of Paris.

Vagabonde said...

I just finished a post about a restaurant with red booths but it was in Hollywood, not Paris – red is a popular color for a booth maybe. So you will be in Paris next week? Sorry to miss you as we are going to Paris in May, after going to Vienna. I hope the weather will be nice for both of us.

Harriet said...

The excitement of counting down the days until take off! Thrilled that you will be in Paris soon.

Starman said...

Benches are extremely rare sights in Paris. Especially outside.

Alexa said...

Grab that banquette, Genie—j'arrive! I only wish I was going back so soon. If the weather is half as nice as it was last week, you'll be very lucky (and of course I hope it's even better for your upcoming visite).

So you'll be in Paris?

Loree said...

I love the simple but striking decor.

Dianne said...

J'aime beaucoup la banquette rouge- well actually I love any banquette in Paris - You are going to love Paris in the spring-time Genie!

Randy said...

The color red makes everything look so cheerful.
