Fodor's Expert Review Bistrot Lepic

$$$ Upper Northwest French

Relaxed and upbeat, with bright yellow walls and colorful paintings, this small, crowded neighborhood bistro is French in every regard—starting with the flirty servers. Traditional bistro fare has been replaced with potato-crusted salmon served with spinach and dill sauce. Some standards, like braised veal cheeks, remain. The wine is all French, with many available by the glass. The wine bar on the second floor has a menu of small plates such as foie gras in port-wine sauce, seared trout, and onion-bacon tart. On this level, seating is first come, first served, with a smaller menu than the one available to downstairs customers with reservations.
