At the crimson-colored Cafe Massilia, chefs and an in-house sommelier transport taste buds to the South of France with a menu of authentic French bistro cuisine. Bottomless mimosas ($6.95) drench a weekend breakfast menu—seen here and here—in which omelets pirouette with mixed greens, assorted blues, fruit, and potatoes and caramelized onions simmered in thyme and garlic. Cinnamon speckles an omelet of caramelized apple slices ($9.95), and an array of crêpes and poached-egg entrees screech in unison to jolt stomachs out of bed. Lunching gullets commence meals with buttered escargot ($8–$15) before presenting taste buds with a nest of crispy french fries perched atop the grilled top sirloin of the steak frites ($13), and the dinner menu sends forks diving into a pool of creamy garlic sauce and white wine, bobbing for shallots and a half-pound ($8) or 3/4-pound ($11) of black mussels. The café boasts wines imported from France, and sippers are encouraged to ask about the wines’ flavors and origins, quizzing the sommelier about when the cross-Atlantic grape vine was originally planted.
