Inventive French cuisine is prepared with a light touch and presented with flair, and perhaps a bit of humor, here. There are lots of themed "tasting" plates with interesting variations on an ingredient. Alternatively, try a prix-fixe meal. Huge portions of hearty French food are served by a genial staff to a lively community gathered on the street-front porch. The caramel dessert tasting features a perfect soufflé or the house-made salted caramel meringues.
