La Croix Verte- Nyon

Ah, the Croix Verte, the cross of the pharmacy… and what was a less than mediocre Italian restaurant in Nyon. One Sunday evening I found myself alone and without groceries.

Bel Ami- Nyon

A few friends and I hit up the Cafe Bel Ami in a most random location in Nyon. The restaurant featured an extensive patio chock full of lemon trees and a menu that was an interesting mix of Peruvian, American, and a little Tex Mex. The three of us being all American were here for…
