MON AMI GABI Lunch + Nonpareil People Watching

It was a simple lunch, really, made exciting by the glorious Spring day and the fact that we were taking pictures of tourists who stopped next to our table to peruse the Mon Ami Gabi menu mounted directly below our perfectly positioned outdoor perch.

Most of the turistas were happy to discuss eating options with ELV, and eventually so many of them stopped by we considered hanging a sign reading: Restaurant Advice $1. Given the economy, that may be a viable employment option sooner than you think.

But mostly we just kibbitzed with the krowd, and let them know that we consider My Friend Gabi one of the superior lunching options in our humble burg.

A Typical conversation:

ELV: Hey! Do you mind if I take your picture for my Web site?

Turistas: Yeah, if you’re one of those porno/perv guys working for Bait & Tackle.

ELV: Do I look like one of those guys?

Turistas: (silence)

Come to think of it, perhaps we should cut a deal with Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises Inc. (the Official Owner of Mon Ami Gabi), whereby we shill for the place, and get our profiteroles for free.

MAG still does skate wing as well as anyone, and the mac ‘n cheese is not to be missed. And about the only thing better than tucking into them (and most of the menu) on a sunny day is the peerless proliferation of people permutations.
