    The Gare is now Cafe du Midi in Bucktown on Damen Avenue last I heard. Loved the original place. Lots of great memories.

      Sadly, the Cafe du Midi has been gone for many years. It was Meritage for a long time and is now the Red Door.

        Thank you for the follow up. Miss all those great French eateris that started up in the '70's. (Sigh)

      Thank you. French the owner actually gave me the recipe - it made about 50# - and it was in my handbag when it was stolen. I would love the recipe!

          Burned down about 12 years ago. Not coming back. But I do know one of the chefs. I'll ask her if she has the recipe.

          I, too loved the Gare. Very authentic French bistro. A match for most Paris bistros. It's where I discovered and learned to love blood sausage. Loved their country pate also. Sadly, I think it's gone.
