Having honed his kitchen skills in his native France, Chef Emmanuel Langlade infuses Aixois' menu with authentic recipes made from local and organic ingredients. Diners can take taste buds on an edible tour of the city of lights with starters of garlic-buttered escargot or mussels soaked in saffron cream broth, or dinners such as a can-canning plate of buttery, grilled frog legs. Pan-seared ruby red trout bathed in lemon juice rests alongside almonds and shallots, and free-range chickens are roasted with lemon and herbs and served whole, halved, or enlightened. Patrons can choose to crown their organic ground-beef burgers with savory grilled onions, or daintily dip bites of sautéed veal liver into a house-made apple compote.
Aixois French Restaurant and Coffee Bar
Authentic techniques are the key to French recipes. Understanding this, Chef Emmanuel Langlade honed his cooking skills in Marseille, France, before opening Aixois Bistro with his wife more than a decade ago.
Amid suspended orb lights and rustic, wrought-iron chandeliers, French flavors prepared by chef Miguel Sanchez delight palates at all hours. As morning light spills through enormous windows, the staff brews fresh coffee to pair with piping-hot croissants for early-bird visitors. Lunchtime guests sample favorite French sandwiches, from the classic croque-monsieurs to the egg-crowned croque madames. For dinner diners, the kitchen dishes up an elegant menu that includes two varieties of moules frites (mussels with pommes frites), as well as seafood, steak, and oven-roasted chicken. Afterward, traditional desserts such as crème brûlée topped with fresh berries cap off meals and keep sweet teeth from rebelliously biting tongues.
