Chef and owner Jean Luc Kieffer constructs a dinner menu brimming with traditional French cuisine infused with contemporary twists using seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. Limber up chewing muscles with escargot ($14) draped in garlic butter, mushrooms, and toasted almonds. The pan-seared trout ($22) joins forces with sautéed green market vegetables and couscous for a heartier main-course meal, and duck confit ($23) dissuades growling stomachs from blurting out their owners’ bank account passwords with poached duck leg, spatzle, spinach, and lar dons. Mealtime codas then commence with offerings from the dessert menu, such as ginger crème brûlée ($8) or chocolate fondant à la mode ($12).
The intimate ambience inside the restaurant makes this a powerful pick for an impactful date night. Surprise a special someone with a dinner date disguised as a vacation to France. When the sun quits lazily hibernating, there’s even a quaint outdoor seating space that further transports patrons to a sidewalk café in Alsace.
