Le Champ de Mars

I had to catch my train in a couple hours, but not before enjoying another meal! Le Champ de Mars is located less than a mile from the Eiffel Tower and has been run by the same family for over 20 years.

The basic bistro had cozy decor and a large terrace. I took a seat at one of the outdoor tables and looked over the menu.

I ordered a glass of white wine and asked the waiter to recommend something. I wasn’t in the mood for anything in particular.

He suggested the salmon or the steak. I opted for the steak. I should have gone with the salmon because it turned out to be a Salisbury steak. It’s not that I don’t like it, but I’ve already had similar meat dishes in Belgium and wanted something different. Oh well.

The ground beef patty was topped with a mushroom sauce and served with a small salad and fries. Eh, it was okay. It would have been so much better if it was an actual steak. The fries with the sauce were pretty good though.

I had one more glass of wine and had to catch that train. I hopped into a taxi and headed t0 the Gard du Nord. This is the station for trains to Northern France and to international destinations in Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.

I made it to the station with a few minutes to spare before boarding. I’m glad I decided to see Paris, even if it was only for the day. I would love to return to this beautiful city for much longer next time. Au revoir, Paris!
