Thanksgiving at Café de Mars

A hop, skip and a jump away from the Eiffel Tower, lies one of my favorite restaurants in Paris, Café de Mars.

Although I don’t get there nearly as often as I’d like, each time I stop by, it's always a real pleasure. Whether it’s for their delicious daily menu, or annual Thanksgiving feast, Café de Mars is an address not-to-be-missed.

As usual, this year’s Thanksgiving dinner drew a large American (and French!) crowd. Boisterous children and happy families filled the small café, crowding around tiny tables of succulent food and good wine.

We began with a spicy butternut, chili and mint soup, followed by a wild rice, cranberry and kale salad. Then came a silver platter full of all the classic favorites: oven roasted turkey with gravy, chorizo, sweet potato, thyme and hazelnut stuffing, mashed potatoes and cranberry chutney (The chutney was oustanding) and green bean casserole with mushrooms and crispy fried onions.

To finish things off, there was a choice of apple or pumpkin pie. We both eagerly asked for the pumpkin, topped with fresh whipped cream, which was to die for.

It was another successful Thanksgiving at Café de Mars. Hats off to the owner, chef and servers for a wonderful night!
