It’s French comfort food served in a 24 seat neighborhood bistro at bohemian prices.  The owner, Claude Postel, is a 7th generation chef and patissier.  The menu and daily specials are listed on a blackboard and  the bistro remains open everyday like true Paris bistros.  Standouts include the market fresh grouper, snapper, and when Claude can find it, the escolar.  Gloria Estefan calls ahead to find out if it’s on the menu that day.  Other favorites include the steak and hand-cut French fries and the tuna tartar for entrees.  Rustic pate (rillette) and crusty baguette, as well as endive and blue cheese salad to start are favorites of the locals. Sundays, a brunch of eggs benedict, French toast or the amazing pastries, all baked next door in the Deli/Bakery, will make you wonder why you haven’t done this before.

Monday: 5 pm – 12 am; Tuesday – Sunday: 11:30 am – 12 am
