There are two chain restaurants opening on Walnut Street, both within a block of my office. One is Le Pain Quotidien (the daily bread, in French) and the other is Chipotle. I’ve eaten at other Chipotles, and they’re decent enough. Le Pain Quotidien is apparently a Belgian chain. I’m intrigued by the menu, and curious about whether they’ll have a decent sized space for meet-ups.
Speaking of meet-ups, the French Conversation Group had one tonight. Attendance was… well, we could have used a few more people, but I’m always glad to have a chance to practice.
