We lived in the Loire Valley for two years and Belgium for two years. A frequent trip from Colorado would not be complete without tasting La vrai cuisine francaise at Café Jean Pierre. The Chef's desire to please is incredible. For a taste of France in New Mexico, this is the place. It's charming! ~Lorraine and Glenn B.
