Cafe Monte French Bakery and Bistro, Winner of the OpenTable Diners’ Choice award Great for Lunch in Charlotte, assembles time-honored French dishes for each meal in a sunny Parisian café. Dip into dinner with the four-cheese fondue’s velvety quartet of cheeses, including gruyere, swiss, mozzarella, and pecorino ($10), or spear an oceanic appetizer without fashioning a wetsuit from napkins with the jumbo lump-crab louis ($14). Wild mushrooms and chicken morsels host a savory soirée inside a crêpe steeped in Madeira-wine crème ($16). Cloaked in black-currant demi-glace, the duck confit ($19) masquerades amongst broccolini and fingerling potatoes in an attempt to outsmart forks.
Diners can arrive earlier to delve into Cafe Monte’s trove of breakfast treats, comprising a menagerie of omelets, quiches and waffles. The Benedict Monte ($14) reposes a pair of eggs atop a croissant chaise, bedecked with pillows of smoked ham, tomato, and asparagus. Lunch carries crisp salads and sandwiches, such as the smoked-salmon croissant with cucumber ($12), to cover scandalously bare tables. As taste buds migrate across the Atlantic, eyes can roam over mounted French artwork and antique photographs, while feet rest comfortably in antigravity boots atop glossy pine floors.
Patrons who pass beneath Cafe Monte's bold red awning seemingly zoom across the Atlantic into a Parisian bistro hung with French artwork and vintage photographs. Platters of mussels arrived drenched in white wine and butter, and pommes frites proudly share the spotlight with steak and french green beans. In the kitchen, chefs sizzle crêpes to a golden brown for breakfast, or fill them with savory lobster and crab for lunch and dinner. Patrons can dine alfresco on an outdoor patio or linger inside the eatery's canary-hued walls, where satisfied customers gather around a piano to sing odes to their favorite French pastry chefs.
