Brasserie Ten Ten Restaurant Review

: Chef Anthony Hessel is satisfying Francophiles at this casually sophisticated corner brasserie and bar on Boulder's Pearl Street Mall, where everyone from aspiring artists and college students to intellectuals and philosophers commune over lively conversation. Hessel's creations, which zigzag from truffled duck pâté and escargots awash in garlic to bouillabaisse stocked with calamari, shrimp, clams, mussels and the fresh catch of the day, are well-executed and vibrantly flavored. The menu is ostensibly French brasserie, but there are enough surprises to keep the restaurant's patrons intrigued. To wit: lavender-crusted sea scallops, shrimp potpie and Cabernet-braised short ribs, all of which are plats du jour. Brunch brings crowds of Boulderites who while away the day on the flower-flush patio digging into duck confit and goat cheese crêpes, buttery croissants and omelets enveloping smoked salmon, onions and cream cheese. The voluminous wine list peddles a myriad of French bottlings, complemented by wines from California, Italy, Australia, Spain and Germany, and nearly thirty pours by the glass.
