Cafe Alsace Restaurant Review

: Owner Benedicte Cooper, who hails from Alsace, France, opened Café Alsace in 1997. Her restaurant highlights traditional French bistro fare, thus, you’ll encounter such delights as house-made liver pâté. But you'll also find the rarely seen German-influenced cooking of her native soil, such as classic spätzle in two versions; stand-out onion pie; choucroute garnie (in cool weather) brimming with smoked meats and sausages; and occasionally coq au Riesling. Rib-sticking cassoulet comes on the menu in winter. Soups are light and flavorful in summer, more substantial in cooler weather, and the French onion is always spot-on. Home-style desserts are headlined by a rich chocolate mousse, but include homemade ice creams, crème brûlée and fresh fruit tarts. French wines and beers with an emphasis on Alsace compose the short but very worthwhile wine list, and some good selections are offered by the glass. For lunch, try a Mauricette sandwich built with Alsace pretzel bread. Brunch is well executed, with stuffed savory crêpes as the star, for instance. Sunday dinner is a fixed-price affair, with two options. If you're done with noisy restaurants, head to this Decatur bistro.
