Au Virage Lepic

Au Virage Lepic is a little bistro in Paris at 61 Rue Lepic. This is the Dap-King’s favorite restaurant in Paris and for good reason. The food is rich, tasty and perfectly French; the atmopshere is cozy and comforting with a gracious host who plays classic soul music all night (he pronounces to me with joy as he lights a cigarette and sways to the music, “this is my life!”, pictured below). When we are in Paris, we make sure to make a reservation because it tends to be crowded. I order Magret de Canard au foie gras (duck breast topped with foie gras, pictured above). Foie gras, a French specialty, is duck or goose liver that has been fattened according to specific regulations. The result is a rich, buttery, delicious delight. Here, it is served on top of a duck breast and covered with some sauce. The dish is heavenly. I also eat snails in a thick creamy sauce, some French onion soup and a tarte tatin (an upside down apple tart). If you are in Paris, make sure to go to this place — it won’t disappoint.
