Though this colorful corner bistro boasts some fusion-forward items, diners in the know stick with the French classics. No quarter is given to tired menu standards like onion soup and boeuf bourguignon; instead, you’ll find truly seasonal fare, like endive in a creamy, umami-rich gratin that nicely softens its bitterness. The rotating specials might include decadent tournedos Rossini—perfectly tender filet mignon.
Low-key vibes, excellent food and soft tunes make this a date-night bijou; and couples typically occupy the tightly packed tables. However, even if you’re rolling solo, you might find yourself falling for the pristine profiteroles, stuffed with vanilla ice cream and drenched in a thick, rich chocolate sauce.- MICHELIN guide inspectors
