Au Rendez-Vous Des Camionnieurs
Pages 2

A SURE INDICATION, as I have said, of a bistro being a genuine one, is to find taxis parked outside and the chauffeurs, at lunch time, having a hearty meal inside. A very true and typical example of this is Chez Jean, whose rough-and-ready bistro is called Le Rendez-Vous des Camionnieurs. Here the taxi, and the truck-drivers come to have a quickly served lunch around midday. The atmosphere is completely unpretentious and the comfort and service "bistro, bistro". Prices are in the definitely cheap category.
