Babette's Cafe Restaurant Review

: Inspired by the film "Babette's Feast," owner Marla Adams has created a cozy, country French restaurant with high ceilings and hardwood floors. It’s a top spot for romantic dining and warmly receives couples eager to enjoy a special meal. In cold weather, the cassoulet is a must. Come spring, a navarin of lamb takes its place. For moments when a lighter appetite dictates smaller portions, sample the small plates, a category enhanced by a good round-up of soups and salads. The half pound of mussels with strawberries and serrano peppers may seem odd, but the flavors create a balance that works. Brunch at Babette's remains a satisfying affair, especially the eggs Benedict on beef tenderloin with sun-dried tomato hollandaise. Dessert portions are huge and house-made ice creams are not to be missed. Crème brûlée, of course, is the classic version, with no off-the-wall flavors or variations. The wine list isn't extensive but it's very well selected, with an eye to price and value.
