Chez Monsieur Marcel


Chez Monsieur Marcel “ La Vie Est Belle“!  We just happened to be in Santa Monica on 3rd Street Promenade few weeks ago and the fresh sea air made us very hungry. We had a leisurely bite at Marcel’s. Marcel Café  is a French outdoor bistro  (with several locations in LA ) we had lunch on  3rd street promenade  in Santa Monica. We sat in the back patio and entertained throughout lunch by a twosome of  awesome blues players.

It’s amazing how they whip out great dishes from their tiny portable kitchen. I liked that they also have for example ” des merguez!” spicy sausage from Algeria or Morocco and other unusual goodies on the menu. We had the Boeuf Bourguignon on that chilly afternoon and  the French Burger with goat cheese and shoestring fries.

While sipping Monsieur Marcel House wine  a smooth Merlot  car” Un jour sans vin est comme un jour sans soleil!” and since I had some wine left I ordered some cheese because as we also say in my family  “When there’s wine left in your glass you got to have cheese!” and vice-versa,

La vie est belle  chez Monsieur Marcel in Santa Monica!

  1. I know another place called “Monsieur Marcel” at the “Farmers Market”. Since I like very much strolling down “the promenade”, I will look for that café and take “a pause”.
