  • Best bets: lobster and tuna burgers in addition to the beef standard. The fried chicken is also incredible.
  • Get the gougeres and the steak tartare.
  • "French powerhouse chef Michel Richard has set up camp Downtown with this semi-casual bistro offering up Franco-American spin-offs like fried chicken, bacon-and-onion tart." -Fodors on TripExpert
  • Gotta go back and try the rest of the menu!
  • Try the fried chicken - A refined, balanced and very tasty plate of Fried Chicken. #recommend
  • All the desserts are divine!
  • During the day, deals are made over bacon cheeseburgers and the best corned-beef sandwiches in town. Ties are loosened at night, and cocktails keep a crowd around the bar.
  • The lobster burger and the fried chicken are the two standout menu items here. So why not come back twice and try both?
  • Make reservations... Seriously, make reservations.
  • The lobster burger is an absolute must!
  • Solid burger and excellent cheese puffs.
  • The lobster burger is totally over rated.
  • Gourmet sliders are fabulous!
  • Do yourself a favor and stuff your face with the fried chicken and chocolate bar. Then sing a song of deliciousness.
  • Skip the 48 hour short rib (really tough, say that's how they should be...) Go with Steak Au Poivre or Tuna Burger. Desserts are unreal, especially sorbets.
  • Fried chicken...nuff said!
  • OMG. The fried chicken is everything everyone said it was. GET IT!!
  • Try the Lobster Burger - Lobster with a scallop mousse. Fantastic!
  • The Mac n cheese is the best thing ever. The tuna burger is also delicious.
  • Yummy fried chicken and large portion! Tuna burger is nice and light. Avoid the chocolate mousse. Disappointing.
