Locals head here for great food and a buzzy atmosphere, which starts at happy hour (from 3 to 6:30 every day). The extensive menu includes classic French offerings, plus several imaginative salads and fromagerie featuring goat, cow, and sheep cheeses from around the world. The bar serves 28 different beers, more than a dozen specialty cocktails, and eight varieties of single-malt scotch. Don't miss the jambon and Gruyère crepes made with béarnaise and aged balsamic,
or if you're there for brunch, the chicken Belgian waffle.
