Paul Maison de Qualite

|
French bakery/bistro with locations all over the place; even at a kiosk in the mall. We ate at the Lincoln Square Mall location.


What we had:


I had a toastie. I can't remember the name, only that it started with an S and was the next to last listed. Fresh rustic country bread
(the crisp crust was great) with a light smear of olive tapenade, a mixture of cheeses (including enmetal, which I had never had) & tarragon, toasted so the cheese melts with a side of spring greens in a light citrus and herb vinaigrette. I loved it. A great light lunch. The cheese was tasty, the bread was faboo. Chris had the Croque Monsieur. Black forest ham, cheese, bechamel sauce; the ubiquitous French sandwich. He said it was great. His came with the greens as well. (yay! no fries!)


D├ęcor
:


Nice, open, French.



Service:


There actually was some, which impressed me. It wasn't great, but it was there. You order and pay and then sit. We sat outside. Our food & drinks were brought to the table.



Overall impression:


I have a strong need to go back to sample the desserts. They looked phenomenal. I need to explore this place further! The bread loaf prices weren't bad ($3-4 per). I wouldn't mind eating here on a semi-regular basis.


Company website ; what
Google says.

4 out of 5 salamanders (yes, redundant I know, but we really haven't eaten anywhere bad yet!)
