Fodor's Expert Review Le Petit Rétro
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Chic clientele (business executives in expensive suits at noon, well-dressed locals in the evening) frequent this little bistro with Art Nouveau tiles and bentwood furniture. You can't go wrong with the daily specials, which are written on a chalkboard presented by one of the friendly servers: perhaps crisp-skinned blood sausage with apple-and-honey sauce, blanquette de veau, and a crêpe mille-feuille with orange and Grand Marnier. Arrive with an appetite because the food is hearty. There are several prix-fixe menus to choose from, starting at €25 at lunch (two courses).
