Classic Historic. The main dining salon is an elegant, uncluttered room with subdued lighting and soft music. The cuisine is typically French with rich creamy sauces and traditional dishes such as escargot and pâtés for starters and entrées of coquilles St. Jacques and tournedos au Poivre among the many selections. For those with a sweet tooth, the crème brûlée is not only delicious but arrives at the table in a portion sufficient to satisfy at least three people. It's located in a historic 1875 building. The restaurant has been continually serving guests since 1972, making it one of the oldest French bistros in the United States.
