When viewing the eatery's exterior, Éclair Bistro appears to be a small, conservative dwelling. But inside, the romantic yet relaxed dining room bustles with bright French-inspired cuisine crafted by chefs Aaron and Lynn—a mother and son team who curate the dynamic menu of old New Orleans dishes made in house from fresh, seasonal ingredients. Highlighting the delicate simplicity of French cuisine, classics such as imported escargot simmer in a rich herbed butter, and pan-roasted duck breast mingles with poached pears and roasted potatoes in a tart raspberry gastrique. The second floor of the 5-year old bistro offers a lounge for guests to enjoy appetizers, wine, cafe au lait, and handmade desserts.
