This Magazine Street cottage might be the most unassuming, unsung bistro in the city. The tiny indoor space creates an intimate French cafe vibe, while the spacious patio offers a lush, hidden garden feel. This romantic neighborhood gem is a relaxing haunt for Uptown executives and the "Daddy's buying" university crowd.
While the ambience might be classic French, the menu pulls influences from world cuisines--especially fruit and savory combinations--without undue flourish or flash. A savory French toast starter combines shreds of hearty lamb confit and mushroom with a slightly sugary herbed blueberry reduction, to wonderful effect. A simple sauté of curried Gulf shrimp with dried mango continues the well-executed sweet/spicy theme. The sauteed pork medallions--accented with plums, shiitake and walnuts, then drizzled with a fragrant Armagnac sauce--are a masterful homage to the flavors of southwestern France. Finish with an exceptional molten chocolate cake.
