A wonderful meal and a lady playing bad piano

January 29th, 2010

On my first night in Montpellier, i went to a restaraunt that was highly recomended. It is called Les Bains de Montpellier and is situated behind the opera in the famous Place de la Comedie.

The city baths were founded in the 12th/13th century and were popular up until the second world war. It was so good on our first visit that i broke my rule of eating in the same place 2 night running, and we went back. After having fish the first night, and after a days tasting at Milliseme Bio (on an empty stomach), the 2nd meal had to be a fillet steak, nice and bloody. And it was cooked to perfection. I can still taste it. The wines consumed on both nights were a delicious Terroir Pic Saint-Loup on night one and a Cotes de Rousillon called Petit Taureau on the 2nd night. Lots of spice in both, but 1st one had a lot more minerality. Very different. After dinner, a walk in the sqaure and a late night piano bar was in full flow.

She didn’t know how to play Slievenamon but she could hardly play whatever she was playing, so we left her for the comfort of a nice wine bar i know.
