If you think this place looks straight out of Paris, you're right. Nearly everything, from the zinc bar and the banquettes to the light fixtures and cinema posters, was shipped from a defunct café in the City of Light to this atmospheric downtown alley. Order a croque monsieur or niçoise salad at lunchtime. The francophone kitchen sends out even more French staples for dinner, like escargots, steak tartare, coquilles Saint-Jacques, and coq au vin. Grab a table outdoors
(heat lamps keep you warm on cool nights) and pretend you are at a Parisian sidewalk café. Stop by Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights starting at 7:30 pm to enjoy live jazz along with your meal.

The restaurant itself was nicer than I expected, but my husband and I were both disappointed in our entrees (he had tuna and I had boeuf bourgignon), which were just okay. Luckily, the atmosphere and service were nice, and the soup and dessert were great.

Despite the wait staff that held me hostage after delivering the bill, I found the goat cheese salad to be as good as those I've had at the best Paris Bistros.
