Snuggled in an ivy-covered, century-old carriage house, Violette comforts weary travelers with homestyle French cooking courtesy of a highly trained mother-and-son chef team. The menu favors local ingredients wherever possible, and, like the slowest county-fair ferris wheel ever, rotates seasonally. In the Tuscan salad, baby spinach and arugula pile decorously with fennel, red-onion crescents, and freshly shaved parmesan; cornichons and dijon mustard mingle with the pâté de Campagne appetizer. Mussels, steamed with marinara sauce, come hailing from Prince Edward Island, and the Violette cheeseburger gives a nod and an elbow jab to American eats, perching a hulky 10-ounce natural ground-sirloin patty atop a brioche bun, served with fries. Chimay Trappist ale and demi-glace coats brisket of beef in flavor that artfully pairs with the accompanying julienne of squash and carrots.

In addition to outdoor patio seating, the cozy interior’s maple floors, rough-hewn chestnut beams, blue-stone hearth, and Provençal blue and yellow chairs foster a space that’s both rustic and chic, like a cactus corsage. Whatever the dining hour or day, Violette’s gracious servers will gladly suggest pairable sippers from the wine bar, slinging revamped grape juices by the glass or bottle, domestic and imported ales and lagers, and cocktails from a full bar.

The house wine was delicious, and the hangar steak was soft, perfectly cooked, and very flavorful. We had a great time there, the staff was great, and the atmosphere was peaceful. Thanks!
