This bistro is in an older building, small and intimate, with a kitchen you walk past to get into the dining room and whose meaty, garlicky smells pervade every corner. I just love that!
The menu is more about French classics than innovation, and that's not a bad thing. Escargot, moules frites, steak frites, pates, French onion soup, duck confit, etc--they're all there, along with dishes featuring chicken and salmon and a la carte sides like creamed spinach and buttermilk mashed potatoes.
We were disappointed that the 'frites' appeared to be from food service supply frozen vs. fresh, but everything else was terrific. Would give a special mention to the outstanding Alsatian tart/flatbread (often called pissaladiere, but not here), wherein the onions were augmented with rich blue cheese and bacon instead of the traditional gruyere and anchovies.
Desserts were good, too. Especially appreciated a refreshing plate of fresh oranges with herb (basil? mint?) and topped with a single scoop of orange sorbet.
