This restaurant was owned by the same people as Ye Olde Steak House, but it was much more casual in atmosphere and it its cuisine. I would say that L’Auberge de la Bastille was more of a bistro, before that word became bandied around. They also were more French Canadian, then French in their cuisine.
The restaurant offered perch fillets done in wine, poached salmon and lamb dishes. Since I had grown up eating lamb at home, I had an innate bias against trying lamb that was not prepared in the dishes that I was used to. This was the first time that I had ever encountered crepes as an entrée, rather then as a dessert, which they also offered. At that time, I had never tried salmon, which I later discovered can be wonderful, I opted for the seafood crepes, which were about as adventurous as I was to be at that young age. As I look back I was very parochial in my views and selection of foods, and dare I say, I still am.
As for the wine with the dinner I tried a sparkling wine from the Bordeaux district. The wine is a non-vintage bottle of Veuve du Vernay Blanc de Blancs Brut. There is no way the French would allow this wine to be called a champagne, as it is not from the proper area, and of all places Bordeaux, but it was a fun wine. This sparkling wine is a combination of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Colombard varietals which were blended in a very flavorful way. If you ever see this wine being offered, go ahead and try it, to discover a totally different wine offering from Bordeaux.
