A Treat for Lunch.  Worth Finding.

My wife and I discovered O2 LA while heading back to our car after a morning walk around Nimes. We were first attracted to the tables outside under a canopy and trees on the Place Des Esclafidous. As we looked at the posted menu and the plaza, we were graciously welcomed. Yes, it was possible to get lunch and, yes, eating at a table on the plaza was encouraged. I’ve posted photos of our lunch plates, as it’s hard to describe how pretty they were, served on slate “plates.” I enjoyed a salad with slices of local ham. My wife had the salad of the day, which was topped with warm goat cheese wrapped in a small crepe.

Some hints on finding it: on Google Maps the street-level picture of Place Des Esclafidous shows the same place with the name “Gargantua” on the awning. I think Gargantua has moved. Next time I’m there, I’ll find out the details. Just look for Place Des Esclafidous and you’ll find it.

When I searched for O2 LA on the internet, I found it listed as an “oxygen bar” and also as gay friendly. Maybe later at night the place starts to swing. I probably won’t stay up late enough to find out the details of that. All I know is that we really enjoyed our luncheon salads.
