This unassuming spot has a very good kitchen. The service is usually just as good, but the service staff changes more frequently. Fantastic wine list, of course, and suffers from no west coast "organic kale" trendiness or pretense.

We enjoyed a late lunch, and the food was excellent. The mussels were very tender and the "frites" very crisp and delicious. The service was pleasant. We would definitely go again.
