In the art of Paris

The piece of entrecote on the plate in front of me is seeping juices the colour of cranberry juice. On the tablecloth, which is a sheet of butcher's paper, there is a basket of freshly baked bread, a glass of Cheval Blanc from Saint Emilion and a cone of steaming pommes frites.
