A Light Lunch at A Priori Thé - Galerie Vivienne
With a limited menu offering salads, quiche, pasta, and two daily specials, this is a good option if you're looking for a light lunch in a quiet setting. My zucchini stuffed with goat cheese and basil was served on a bed of tender greens topped with shaved parmesan and accompanied by a green olive and hazelnut tapanade. Unfortunately, the cheesecake, which comes in two different serving sizes, disappeared before I thought to take a picture.
The food was fresh and well prepared, the setting was tranquil, and the service was indifferent, although the waitress did bring a big bowl of ice for the American tourists seated next to me. Would I travel across town to go to A Priori Thé? No. Will I go back when I'm near the Jardins du Palais Royale? Yes, mainly because I like the setting in the Galerie Vivienne. Will I order a larger piece of cheescake next time? Most definitely!
