A newly opened addition to the Player's Club restaurant, the Bistro at Player's is a casual, French-inspired destination helmed by chef Charles Campbell. Continental cuisine accented with American flavors graces the menu, starting with an appetizer of country duck pâté served with a celery root and apple salad designed to offset the poultry’s richness ($8). Fete aquatic abundance with the shrimp provençale linguine accompanied by a savory trio of tomatoes, garlic, and olives ($18) or the sea-scallop-truffle risotto ($20) infused with enough Italian essence to make a Tuscan expatriate cry tears of marinara.
By day, the restaurant occupying 145 NE 4th Avenue goes by the name Crepes by the Sea, a French creperie with fresh-roasted coffee. But at night, it transforms into SWIG Wine Bar, a wine and craft beer lounge serving a melange of French and Italian dishes. Meals might begin with appetizers of sushi-grade tuna tartar with avocado and sun-dried tomato, or a salad decorated with gourmet ingredients such as pears, walnuts, and sweet gorgonzola. Entrees include classic pasta dishes, such as four-cheese gnocchi, as well as specialty creations. Cuts of mustard-crusted salmon plunge into a beurre blanc sauce, and truffle mashed potatoes pair nicely with grilled rib eye steak. On Wednesdays, guests can follow an in-depth exploration of both the food and wine menus with regional pairings, and on Thursdays, live music sets the scene more pleasantly than someone loudly narrating each diner's movements.
Crêpe Maker’s vast menu of sweet and savory crêpes whisks palates away to the cobbled streets of Paris, where the tastes of sizzling fruits and cheese coalesce with the aromas of pan-fried butter. A Louvre-worthy assortment of veggie crêpes features sculpted wonders of tomato, cheese, and basil ($5.95–$6.95), while an El Rancho breakfast crêpe entices stick-wielding tongues with a plated piñata full of eggs, salsa, red peppers, onions, blended cheese, and vine-ripened tomatoes ($6.95). Taste buds may revolt against bland fare after beholding the marinated chicken breast and sweet baked ham of the cordon bleu crêpe ($6.95–$7.95), but a sugarcoated Nutella and raspberry duo ($5.95–$6.95) will effectively cool their tempers. Modeled after the street cart creations of Paris, Crêpe Maker’s hand-held fare can be enjoyed while strutting through promenades, sitting with friends, or sword fighting with baguettes.
Blue Lemon Cafe quells hunger pangs morning, noon, and night with café cuisine of the sweet and savory variety. The menu of crepes, fruit smoothies, ice cream, and hearty sandwiches won the admiration of Metromix in 2010, earning the eatery a Best Café nod. Like John Wayne’s impersonation of Charles de Gaulle, the café blends American classics with a French twist, inviting diners to sip glasses of wine alongside their cheeseburgers, or dive into Francocentric food such as niçoise salad and quiche Lorraine. Between lime-green walls, circular tables and streamlined eggshell-white chairs create a hip, laid-back atmosphere permeated by free WiFi.
