Foursquare Tips

  • Don't sit at my table. I have a favorite table here but won't tell you which one because then you'll sit there. So just be smart and don't sit at my table. All the eggs are delicious.
  • Same owner as Buttermilk Channel so it's gonna be great. Apps: half lobster and sardines w/ bread + butter. Main: Pappardelle w/ oxtail ragu. Love the walnut bitters in Normandy Old Fashioned.
  • Smoked sardines are unmissable.
  • Get the anything on the menu
  • Great brunch! Socca and French Louie are both amazing!
  • The Creme Brle French toast is killer
  • Steak frites are where it's at, but don't forget to get some fried artichokes for the table
  • House-smoked sardines from Rhode Island with rye are just the thing to start dinner. Yes, the giant slab of butter is studded with dulse, a kind of red algae, and yes, it's totally delicious.
  • Great brunch, friendly staff very on top of service, just right sized portions (not fatso American super sized, sorry), delicious coffee!
  • Sit at the bar to feel extra spoiled and attended to for dinner. Every dish we had was excellent, and the bartender's knowledge of wine pairings was spot on.
  • With a glass of wine -Sardines , dark bread and kelp butter! Perfect for cold day.
  • the oxtail pappardelle is IN-CRED-I-BLE. so is the cauliflower side.
  • Great cocktails and the lobster app was amazing!
  • Sardines and pt
  • Great place to bring parents: they can feel trendy and you can eat free.
  • Mezcal and pisco cocktails aren't that common in French restaurants... if you can't handle the chartreuse, get the Chespirito... All apps and dishes were on point, too!
  • casual but energetic vibe. lovely patio out back. fish dishes are hits, pretty sublime burger, love the brunch. the radishes in black olive butter? not so much. on the weekend, make the reservations.
  • The steak and the back patio
  • Burger the size of your head. Same with the fried chicken and the po' boy sandwich. All delicious. Highly recommended.
  • delicious & great cocktails !
