    Mon Ami in Lincoln Park is a snapshot of a traditional French bistro venue. Everything is great: warm French baguette, New York strip and, of course, creme brûlée!! All is VERY good!

    A twist on the classic French dish, the beef bourguignon benedict features an English muffin, poached egg, hollandaise, beef cheeks, celery, onion and carrot in a red wine sauce. Read more

    Great eavesdropping at this cozy resto; while you're pretending not to be nosy, try an order of frites and escargot to start; fish dishes are really good, and the desserts are pretty solid.

    The escargots were super disappointing - skip them. My friend had the Bordelaise steak, which I tried a bite of and highly recommend.

    Awesome Value. Tuesdays they offer Duck L'Orange which is to die for. Their Fish & Frites is light & tasty and their Steak & Frites options are amazing. High quality meat :)

    Les escargots sont magnifiques avec du pain chaud. Like buttah. Or literally, as they're swimming in about two sticks' worth.
