There’s both a movie & a song titled Pretty Woman, now I don’t imagine all of you have watched the movie or heard the song- but both of them stick with you.
This weekend I had a wonderful opportunity to take my best friend to a French Restaurant for dinner, I had missed her birthday due to work and wanted to make it up to her!
A lovely French Bistro set on the beach was absolutely perfect- the cozy environment and friendly staff made it amazing without even bringing up the delicious edibles they had.
No, we did not try the escargot! (I’m not that adventurous lol!)
I think the main reason I didn’t want to try the escargot was because there’s actually a scene in the movie Pretty Woman where she’s trying to eat that exact dish… and well, let’s just say what followed wasn’t actually scripted but they put it in the movie anyways to give us a good laugh!
When you go to a French Bistro, be careful because it can get pricey, but here’s some menu items that two people can eat and love for the price of one or that I definitely suggest trying!
Tarte Flambee~ Flatbread with sour cream, bacon, and onion. (I suggest the one with swiss cheese and mushroom as well!)
Shrimp a la Vodka~ Cooked shrimp served over rice or noodles with a light tomato cream sauce. (My new personal favorite, my friend and I both split it and were full!)
Canard A L’Orange~ In English it’s Duck a L’Orange, duck served crispy with an orange mustard glaze. (My friend freaked out about this one because she really likes duck, don’t ask me why xD)
Lavender Creme Brulee~ a delightful dessert that the restaurant put a sparkler on for my friend!
Of course don’t forget to try the homemade hot chocolate!
Now more about that movie! I can’t seem to get the song from Pretty Woman out of my head, especially after re-watching it and admiring the dresses the protagonist wears later on in the movie. My favorite one will always be the striking red one she wears to the opera!
Throughout the movie we see Vivian’s new outfits- while some are more on the questionable side, later we see gorgeous ones that she went to so many stores to find (while we listened to that song again). Which outfits or dresses were you favorite??
Now I should probably clarify that I’m talking about the 1990 version of Pretty Woman, there was a remake in 2015 I believe, but I never watched that one.
I love when Julia Roberts & Richard Gere play in a movie together, they’ve played in a few other chick-flicks that are some of my favorites (The Runaway Bride)! They have a very nice chemistry and a lot of scenes in Pretty Woman actually were bloopers that they just left in- of Julia (Vivian) laughing in surprise when Richard closed the jewelry box on her hand and several others!
”So what happened after he climbed up the tower and rescued her?”
”She rescued him right back.”– Pretty Woman
(Here’s a link the song, so you’ll know why it’s so catchy!!)
Have any of you ate at a Bistro? What did you like??
What are your thoughts on the movie & song Pretty Woman??
Thanks for reading & have a lovely day!!
