Description

Ten variations on steak frites (try the hanger steak with merlot butter) with thin hand-cut fries set the theme for this convivial turn-of-the-century Parisian bar look-alike. Pristine oysters, classic onion soup au gratin, and rich chicken liver mousse with Burgundy red wine mustard are among the well-handled hors d’oeuvres. And if you haven’t enjoyed Gallic-comfort boeuf bourguignonne in a while, you are in for a treat. Seating tends to be so close that you should keep an eye on your gooey warm chocolate pudding cake with salted caramel cream. (In Oak Brook, 630-472-1900)
