Bistro Monet Restaurant Review

: Chef-owner Michel Saragueta opened this quaint French bistro on the coattails of a brief stint cooking at Oak Park’s now-shuttered Café le Coq. He well deserves to be on his own, though, because his full-flavored food shines as brightly as his classic training shows. Located in the former home of Les Deux Autre and Les Deux Gros, this oak-paneled space looks virtually the same (read: elegant). We recommend the sharable short rib ravioli with robust wild mushroom-Madeira cream sauce and think the French onion soup is respectable, too. Among entrées, the honey salmon medallions are king with root vegetables, whipped potatoes and mustard emulsion, and the roasted rack of lamb is a treasure. Watch for weekly specials, which include options like chicken Normandy crêpes. For dessert, nosh on the three-chocolate soufflé while taking in French café tunes. There’s an appealing, French-heavy, affordable wine list.
