French restaurants aren't often known for their chill vibe or affordability, but this counter-service charmer proves otherwise, with classic comfort foods like quiches, salads, and plats that are all available at down-to-earth prices. Diners customize with mix-and-match sauces like Dijon mustard or Cognac black pepper to pair with a steak and choice of sides. Families, kids, and those with pets in tow can be seen nibbling on refreshing crevettes Basquaise tossed with spicy paprika and sweet onions; or crispy skinned poulet rôti served in sauce champignons and accompanied by a delicately dressed salade verte. Note: there will be butter. For that final bit of sweet, a creamy and luscious crème brûlée topped with a caramelized sugar shell is très bien.
