Conceptualized by cousin chefs Serge Pambo and Jean Evens Estinfort—both of whom received their culinary training in Paris—Café de Paris uses a pneumatic tube to transport France’s authentic flavors to your table. For lunch, roll up one of the café’s classic stuffed seafood, chicken, turkey, or ham crêpes ($9.95), or seduce salivators with the hot ham and cheese of a croque Paris madame topped with béchamel sauce ($9.95). Café 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 red fruit sauce ($23.95) and steak au poivre with spicy peppercorn sauce ($22.95). Patrons made of fragile porcelain or waffle cone can dine on the dainty salade niçoise, a fresh toss of mixed greens, green beans, tomatoes, olives, tuna, hard-boiled egg, and anchovies ($10.95). Like the blush in a wine-warmed cheek, the warm hues of tabletop bouquets stand out against Café de Paris’s crisp table linens. The café’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. Café de Paris also hosts live music, so visit the website to view the schedule if you like to coordinate your chews with orchestrated beats. Café de Paris is closed for dinner on Sunday and Monday nights and for lunch on Saturdays.
