Le Bistrot de Pierrerue

Rue de la Ferraille
Pierrerue , France

The unlikely people behind Pierrerue's only storefrotn are Maryvonne and Mark Marinelli, Americans in their forties who formerly owned a corporate catering company in North Carolina. Aside from his very limited French and Maryvonne's accent, there's nothing that betrays the bistro as being run by foreigners. This is true not just of the atmosphere but the food: silky quenelles of chicken-liver mousse; tarte Tatin.
