Les Frères Jacques

Les Frères Jacques Review

Many restaurants call themselves French, but this elegant eatery next to the Olympia Theatre positively reeks of Gallic panache. Old prints of Paris and Deauville hang on the green-papered walls, and the French waiters, dressed in white Irish linen and black bow ties, exude a European charm without being excessively formal. Expect traditional French cooking that nods to the seasons. Seafood is a major attraction, and fresh lobster is typically roasted and flambéed with Irish whiskey. Others prefer the beef fillet paired with grilled lamb cutlet, potato, and celeriac. Also recommended are the seasonal game specialties. A piano player performs Friday and Saturday evenings and on the occasional weeknight.
