Bonjour French Chowhounders:
I have an odd request. A friend of mine is teaching a university course on Chemistry and Impressionism in Paris and Provence (Avignon, Aix and Nice and surrounding areas) next January. I'm wondering if any of you had suggestions about restaurants, cafes, bistros in those areas that might have some relevance to any of the Impressionists or Impressionism in general. We'll be scouting out locations in a few weeks and we can check out any suggestions you have. Thanks very much for your assistance.
