Fodor's Expert Review Jeune et Jolie

$$$ Carlsbad French Fodor's Choice
Say "bonjour" to this delightful French restaurant with a Breakfast at Tiffany’s vibe, where pink velvet booths and a center bar with an absinthe tower will leave you thinking you’ve died and gone to Paris. The French-inspired, SoCal-fueled menu changes with the season, but expect labor-of-love cuisine like pithiver (pastry pie) stuffed with heritage pork, pastured chicken, and sweetbread, or aged duck with parsnip and mushrooms; embrace the moment with the signature frogs' legs and savory escargot, or the fresh-shucked oysters. The five-course Starry Night tasting menu can be enjoyed beneath olive trees and twinkling stars.
