The French Paradox is one of the places where I regularly take refuge when hanging up my reviewing boots. It’s incredibly simple. You get a terrific selection of directly imported wines, carefully selected cheese and charcuterie, the odd hot dish (deeply traditional and French). There’s crusty bread. What the hell else do you want?
