Within a whitewashed façade with castle-like turrets, chefs at Le Petit Chateau craft rustic dishes reminiscent of French countryside fare. Traditional sauces such as béarnaise and velouté coat seafood and steak as diners start meals with hors d'oeuvres of foie gras and escargot. Whether couples savor a glass of hand-selected wine at the bar or share a chocolate soufflé for two in a booth, Le Petit Chateau's cultivates a romantic atmosphere without the need to vaporize a box of love letters.

Offering breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner, Saddle Ranch’s menu of succulent steaks—such as the New York strip ($28.99) with a demi-glaze, Jack Daniel’s sauce, or herb-garlic butter—are, of course, the big draw. But its specialties extend far beyond that to include barbecue baby-back ribs ($21.99), seasoned sweet and spicy black-tiger shrimp ($18.99), and fresh Atlantic salmon garnished with fresh lemon and garlic-herb butter ($19.99). Lighter appetites, meanwhile, can tuck into sandwiches like the Jack Daniel’s sloppy joe ($10.99) or a south-of-the-border Hacienda Salad ($12.99). Top off a gut-busting repast with the deep-dish cobbler ($8.99) before riding Saddle Ranch's mechanical bull into a credits-rolling sunset.

Pro Tip: Friendly atmosphere. A Parisian bistro. Elegant but informal.
Le Petit Bistro likens its atmosphere to an afternoon in Paris's left bank. Its narrow interior, dark wooden tables, and vintage French posters make it easy to imagine rubbing elbows with artists, writers, philosophers, and probably also some French people. To enhance the experience, the kitchen prepares classic French entrees for lunch and dinner, from a red wine braised lamb shank to a grilled rib eye steak in pepper sauce. Even the lighting helps with the quaint, familiar feeling, relying on sunlight by day and candles by night to brighten up the dining room and outdoor patio-garden.
The Riverside Cafe's cooks draw inspiration from European and American cuisine as they create a menu of bistro-style comfort fare. In addition to baking bowls of french onion soup topped with a shell of imported gruyere, they grill beef and turkey hamburger patties and load baked potatoes with a number of familiar, yet decadent, ingredients, including sour cream and bacon. On Thursday nights, they embrace seasonal ingredients by featuring a specially prepared menu item, which have previously included wild boar and Stilton steak.
Beyond the intimately sized dining room with its "rustic, wood-beamed ceiling," as described by Gayot, the restaurant can seat guests and their canine personal assistants at the outdoor tables. White picket fences and trellises enclose the outside area, and a small awning and robin-egg-blue umbrella protect guests from the sun's harsh rays and dive-bombing pigeons.
