Waiters dressed in black rondin jackets and crisp white aprons waltz among the tables, one serving a group of tourists as they delight in sampling classic French dishes for the first time. At another table, a busy woman sips her coffee as she taps on her phone screen, while the garçon scribbles her bill on a corner of the tablecloth. In the corner a business lunch is in full swing and the wine is flowing, while opposite them a family sits down and scans the day’s menu with eager anticipation. A rendition of “Happy Birthday” rises up at the table where a retired couple of local regulars are sitting, and all the while the servers continue their dance, ebbing and flowing as the dishes keep on coming. Order up!
