French Restaurants in Enumclaw

Select Local Merchants

With Chloe Bistrot, French-born chef and owner Laurent Gabriel has transformed an unassuming storefront in Laurelhurst into an elegant eatery seemingly plucked straight from Paris. Inside, cherry-red upholstery, dark chestnut walls, and polished tabletops puts guests into a Parisian state of mind even before they glimpse the menu of classic French fare. Diners can begin with escargot in garlic and parsley butter before moving onto steamed mussels in a tomato, garlic, and fresh thyme broth. An extensive wine list, meanwhile, pulls together varietals culled from across the French countryside, while authentic desserts like tarte tatin rival those found in any French bakery or left carelessly on any French windowsill.

Recently opened by the owners of the popular Hangar Cafe, The Ridgeback Cafe designs couture crepes, waffles, sandwiches, and more. Stroll into the 65th Street location and dig into the signature Ridgeback crepe, an envelope stuffed, like wedding invitations, with sausage, egg, onions, mushrooms, avocado, and cheddar ($9.50). Sucrose seekers can chomp on a coco-banana crepe, adorned with whipped cream, toasted coconut, and walnuts ($7). A savory waffle tellingly named "Are you kidding me?" brandishes two fried eggs and apple-smoked bacon ($7.50), while the Triple B waffle mixes apple-smoked bacon, brie, and basil for a meal more satisfying than discovering a brick of gold in a winter-coat pocket.

Huddled around a small table and surrounded by wine racks, you’ll have to remind yourself that you’re not actually in Paris. Or not. Pretending is half the fun at Crêpe Café, which pairs French wines with sweet and savory crepes.

Place Pigalle: A User’s Guide

French Cuisine | Pike Place Market | Puget Sound Views | Intimate Seating

Sample Menu

  • Cocktail: Mariana, made with vodka, Mandarine Napoléon, Campari, and fresh lime
  • Appetizer: octopus with housemade lavender-and-fennel sausage, preserved lemon, tomatoes, spinach, and garlic
  • Entree: bouillabaisse provençale with seasonal fish, Dungeness crab, clams, mussels, prawns, saffron-tomato broth, and crostini rouille

Where to Sit: Day or night, find a window seat, or—better yet—grab a table outside to take in the epitomic Seattle sights.

When to Go: The restaurant is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, or you can stop in for a glass of wine or cocktail at the bar.

While You’re Waiting

  • Take in the views of the bright ferris wheel, glimmering Elliott Bay, and Olympic Mountain.
  • Glance through the 11-page list of regional and international reserve wines, from champagnes to sherries.

Inside Tips

  • Don’t skip the cocktails. Bartenders squeeze fresh orange, grapefruit, lime, and lemon juice for house drinks, such as the Tuscan Lemon Drop with fresh lemon and vanilla-citrus liquor, and classics like a Hemingway Daiquiri or Corpse Reviver #2.
  • Silence your cell. Fellow diners will appreciate it, and the staff will expect it.

Fun Fact: Place Pigalle is named after the red-light district in Paris. Years before it became a fine-dining institution in 1982, it served as a bordello (masked as an inn), a biker hangout, and then a gathering place for artists and travelers.

Vocab Lesson
Dungeness crab: West Coast crab with a slightly sweeter taste than snow or king crabs.
Bouillabaisse: a Provençal fish stew originating in Marseille, typically made with several types of fish and shellfish and served with rouille on grilled bread.
