French restaurant menus offer a wide variety of high quality wines from California and France to complement the creations coming out of the kitchen. French restaurant menus understand that the robust, hearty or nutty taste of a wine can enhance the flavors of French restaurant menus's culinary concoctions.

French food dictionary balanced in my palms, like a slab of slate flecked with twinkly mica. The weight felt substantial. It smelled like an animal in the forest. Pulling back a page, I'd realized I'd not had a real book experience in ages. I've become careless with books, viewing them as throwaways, like H&M clothing. I've been guilty of sacrilige. I've marked them up, hard covers too, with pencil, pen even, as if knowing the sufferable truth; modern books are defamable.
