Draft IPA = killer! $7 but worth it. Window seats also amazing. Crudite "salad" a bit overpriced (basically raw vegetables and fancy ranch sauce). Waitress kindly warned me that the salad was for "dipping," but I was too enamored of my IPA to pay her advice due credence. If you're on a raw food diet, I'd recommend, but for $10, not so much. Pomme frites hot and tasty--definitely recommended as well!

Make sure you're hungry when you go! The food is AMAZING. Our service was great, the atmosphere is upscale but relaxed, and portions are generous.

Make reservations. Be aware that traffic is awful in the area right now due to closing on 44, so factor that in or avoid the freeway.

From Our Editors

The Soulard building has come a long way since its days as a turn-of-the-century shoe factory. Its newest tenants, however, still pay homage to their space’s industrial origins, keeping the original concrete pillars and exposed brick walls in Franco's dining room. That isn't to say the owners scoff at modernity—they've updated the charmingly rustic environs with sleek, undulating light fixtures. This balance between past and future extends to the cuisine, which has been lauded by St. Louis Magazine as a “minor masterpiece.” Chefs spotlight classic French meats and cheeses and infuse them with Midwestern flourishes such as molasses-bourbon gastrique sauce. Additionally, servers happily recommend wine pairings or the best wine bottles for trapping genies, a feat that earned Franco’s staff the Best Service in a Restaurant award from Riverfront Times.
