    Order the escargot (slightly sweet). Also order duck confit (not too greasy). Great, intimate, and polished but not pretentious atmosphere. You can hear your companion(s) talk, which is lovely.

    The mussels are delicious, specially if ordered with a side of house French fries. Don't forget to order the black and white creme brule for a unique dessert experience.

    Fusing upscale bistro cuisine with gastronomic grub, stop in to sample succulent selections such as filet of beef au poivre, Belgian endive salad, & roasted Magret duck.

    Relax! Nobody’s going to force-feed you ham here. And actually, straight-up ham isn’t even an option. Offered instead: quiche Lorraine, steak and eggs, croque-monsieur and pineapple crêpes. Read more

    Good (and bottomless) mimosas and really tasty salads will probably be what brings me back here. My dining companions really enjoyed their brunch steaks as well.

    The award for the butteriest, gooiest, and flat out fattiest grilled cheese in town goes to Bistronomic's grilled cheese. The cheese changes daily.

    Beet salad was amazing, steak entree was lukewarm and left something to be desired. I'll be coming here for cheese and drinks only.

    If you only order one dish: the Amish chicken. Succulent, with a wine reduction that has a kick of orange. Have a cot

    You’ve been here before—what was it that brought you back again? It’s not the room, and not the crowd. But it just may be the delicious grilled cheese du jour.
