Chez Julian


I was strolling through my artist friend Shellsherree's great blog and stumbled on this delightful painting. I recognized the car and went straight to my photo stash to find my photo taken in front of Chez Julian. Located in the 4th ème, it is a lovely, if a bit pricey little restaurant. I fell in love with the car thinking I was just exceptionally fortunate to find it parked there. Apparently it's a part of the charm of Chez Julian. Either that, or Cali (whose photo sparked Shell's great artwork) and I both got very lucky!

Oh wow, Virginia {and thank you}! It's wonderful to see the close-up of the car ~ what a beauty, hey?! You and Cali both captured a gorgeous scene!

Kismet!

The car is what caught my eye also. I have seen photos of Chez J online without the car in front, but I suspect those are flukes. I have to agree with you: we both got very lucky! :-)

Cali,
We sure did get lucky. Now I wish Peter and I had stopped for yet another glass of wine that day and enjoyed the view! I think I pressed my nose against the window and had a look inside! :)

Chez Julian must be a chain. We ate at the Chez Julian in Toulouse. It wasn't all that expensive.

How did I come across your blog in the first place? Probably through Shell. At any rate, I'm enjoying it very much!

Virginia said...

Alexa,
Welcome and please return,

Starman,
Don't even mention the word....chain! :))

Shell,
de rien!

Daryl.
Could a trip to Paris be in our future???

Peter said...

Not a chain, but I believe that Chez Julien belongs to a family (Costes) who has also some others around...., maybe ten in Paris!

... yes Virginia, another glass of wine on a terrace with you sounds nice!

Peter,
Thanks as always for helping out with the details I don't know or just don't look up! You know I'm all about the photos but don't write much down to help myself remember! And oui, I can't wait to get back and find a terrace....maybe Chez Julian or who knows....we have so many favorites now! :)
