This local favorite, also known as Fast and French, has celebrated 30—that's right, 30—years in business. And it's all thanks to the consistent food and the esprit de corps of the staff that keeps regulars coming back. Sharing family-style tables for breakfast, lunch, or dinner leads to camaraderie. Thursday brings a crowd for fondue. The cheese version can be disappointing, but the seafood, which you cook in broth yourself, is better. Opt to get your cheese fix with
the wonderful Bucheron cheese salad. Nightly specials, such as bouillabaisse, are reasonably priced and come with a petite glass of wine. The subtly sweet chocolate-mousse cake is the best way to end your meal.
