Our first week in Paris we ate at a lovely restaurant with a limited menu for our large group, and we both ordered the medallions of pork with dark cherries. The meat was fixed with a rich sauce and perched on top of smooth, rich mashed potatoes.
At the end of our visit we decided this restaurant, Le Café Bonal on Boulevard Voltaire, was our favorite of the trip and chose it for our last hurrah. This time, with the whole menu to pick from, I ordered the same pork dish as I had the previous week. It was just as good, but with a whole lot more cherry sauce than the first time! (I liked the first version best; the potatoes had more chance to shine through.)
