Postscript to CBM in Paris: La belle cuisine, bien sur!

Eleven, where wine is served.
  • Eleven, where wine is served.

I forgot to include in yesterday's post about my interview with Don Bacigalupi of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art a question he was asked — one he said he'd never gotten before a talk he'd given. And it was, how's the food at the museum? What's on the menu?

Bacigalupi said he was "thrilled" with the question. "That's something we've paid attention to." He bragged on Eleven's "high South, lower Midwest" cuisine and the efforts to buy locally.

Typical question from the French, non? I asked him if the questioner wanted to know about the wine. He didn't, but Bacigalupi addressed that important question. "I did mention that we do serve very good wine," though the museum is in a dry county. Do the French have the concept of "dry county"?
