Chicago, IL 60610

Critic’s Notes

Astute cooking and a cozy vibe transcend the Parisian cliché here. The soup, crusty bread, and paper-wrapped frites are spot-on. More ambitious dishes also succeed: feather-light puff pastry on the vol-au-vent, perfectly cooked green beans with roast pork medallions, and tangy braised cabbage with the seared duck breast. Mostly French wines. The Monday prix fixe three-course meal ($29) is a real deal.
