The list of wines at this French bistro-cum-wineshop in a quiet northwest neighborhood is nearly 1,000 deep, and free tastings are held on Saturday afternoon from 11:30 until 1:30. You can buy a bottle at retail prices in the store and then drink it while dining ($10 corkage fee) in the cozy dining room or on the expansive lakeside terraces. When you're ready to eat, dine on the fare of Michelin two-star chef Alex Stratta, who consults with the restaurant, starting with
a cheese or charcuterie tray and moving on to seared foie gras with vanilla bread pudding or an heirloom beet salad with goat cheese mousse. Entrées might include a classic steak frites or a lobster and rock shrimp risotto. Hear live music most Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights.
