Dining at Café Degas is like being at a sidewalk café in Paris, even though the restaurant is completely covered: there's a tree growing through the center of the dining room, and the front windows overlook picturesque Esplanade Avenue. Employees are matter-of-fact, but in a relaxing, European way. The fare here is a mixture of French-bistro cooking and what you might find at a countryside inn—house-made pâtés, onion soup, steamed mussels, duck in orange sauce, steaks,
crème brûlée. Daily specials are always creative and ingenious. An evening here is inevitably romantic. Every Wednesday evening, diners can enjoy a 3-course meal for just $35.
