Conceptualized by cousin chefs Serge Pambo and Jean Evens Estinfort?both of whom received their culinary training in Paris?Caf? de Paris uses a pneumatic tube to transport France's authentic flavors to your table. For lunch, roll up one of the caf?'s classic stuffed seafood, chicken, turkey, or ham cr?pes ($9.95), or seduce salivators with the hot ham and cheese of a croque Paris madame topped with b?chamel sauce ($9.95). Caf? de Paris's dinner menu starts with traditional temptations including moules marinieres (mussels in white-wine sauce, $14.95), then migrates mouths to grilled duck breast with orange glaze ($26.95) and tenderloin beef steak with peppercorn sauce ($24.95). Patrons made of fragile porcelain or waffle cone dine on the dainty Ni?oise salad, a fresh toss of mixed greens, green beans, tomatoes, olives, tuna, hard-boiled egg, and anchovies ($10.95). In addition to lunch and dinner delights, Caf? de Paris offers Sunday brunch, the classic midday bites that are always admirably accompanied by a mimosa ($5). Like the blush in a wine-warmed cheek, the warm hues of tabletop bouquets stand out against Caf? de Paris's crisp table linens. The caf?'s elegant interior provides a beautiful backdrop for marriage proposals, divorce proposals, or admissions of twinning, so grab your significant other or significant other's significantly secret twin for a night on the town. Caf? de Paris also hosts live music, so check the website to find out the schedule. Caf? de Paris is closed for dinner on Sunday and Monday nights and for lunch Saturday.
