Although the business card for “Le Farfalla” says “soirée disco funk salsa,” it was just a nice lunch at the Port de Plaisance with friends from Nice/Atlanta and their cute dog, Ditto.
It was, in fact, a late-for-France lunch, so we basically had the restaurant to ourselves – a great chance to chit-chat and catch up with old and current news.
We ate leisurely, the meal accompanied by a cool, crisp Provencale rosé (bien sûr!), as we discussed politics and other French-American subjects and got to know each other better.
The port of St. Laurent-du-Var is home to a variety of restaurants, bars, and crêperies situated across from the port and links this area to Nice via the promenade, for a nice walk or bike ride.
