Anyone who has ever traveled with children knows the value of finding the one restaurant that serves food that your children will eat, oui? So, when we found Le Napoli Restaurant and Pizzeria on our first trip to Annecy, we knew we had found a dining-out solution for les enfants.
On one of our visits to Le Napoli, we ordered wine with dinner. It turns out that the wine was served in small juice glasses instead of the usual stemware wine glass. I loved the casual, everyday presentation, and when I returned home I set out to find my own small glasses.
I found them at Crate and Barrel and bought two dozen, knowing that they would have many different lives at many different gatherings. Over the years, these small glasses have served wine, water, pastis, juice, and most recently soup as my Thanksgiving amuse bouche.
I treasure these glasses, small and reminiscent of French bistros; they were a worthy investment and they'll grace my table for years to come.
