Regional takes on French cuisine fill the menu at this upscale yet homey establishment inside a stately gambrel-roof 1785 Colonial on Thames Street. Nightly specials are based on the fresh catch from Rhode Island waters, which might include scallops, swordfish, and clams, as well as classics like sautéed duck breast with a ground-coffee crust, finished with a brandy-balsamic sauce. The wine list offers a nice range of New- and Old-World varietals. Kids must be older than
seven to enter the dining room.
