I’ve been to Bistro Campagne twice for dinner but never for brunch. My first experience was when they had their all you can eat mussels (and I was on a mussels kick back then) and the other was dinner with some girl friends. I’ve always wanted to try the restaurant for brunch since they have the outdoor patio and it’s a French restaurant, of course.
So, last week, we decided to stop by Bistro Campagne for brunch. It was nice, warm summer morning so it was perfect weather to be seated outside. The restaurant is kid-friendly as they accommodated us with a highchair for Luke.
I started my brunch with a bloody mary and I have to admit it was pretty darn good. Not too strong but not too spicy. Just right.
My main course was the duck confit. The last time I was in Paris, I had duck confit for dinner every night. So I can’t stay away from it if I see it. The duck confit came with potato hash with two sunnyside up eggs and grill toast. The server gave me a steak knife to eat the duck but it wasn’t necessary. The meat was so tender it fell off the bone. Needless to say, I was very satisfied and happy I got to re-live my Parisian experience.
Charlie ordered the croque madame, which was equally good. By the way, just like me, Charlie orders the same French dish at French restaurants.
We ordered Luke a bowl of fruit. It wasn’t the standard fruit that you get. There were raspberries, grapes, bananas, strawberries, and much, much more. All great fruits for a growing foodie, don’t you think?
The outdoor patio was perfect for Luke to walk around in after our brunch. It was spacious and the other patrons were very patient and nice to him. Now, I want to go eat at Bistro Campagne for dinner…this time outside under the lights and trees…and in 75 degree weather. I’m looking forward to another perfect experience…
