Cafe Alsace Restaurant Review

: Owner Benedicte Cooper hails from Alsace, France, and her restaurant focuses on traditional French bistro fare, such as house-made liver pâté. But she also lets the German-influenced cooking of her native soil enjoy prominence on the menu as well. From the latter tradition, classic spätzle come in two versions; onion pie is a standout; the generous serving of choucroute garnie brims with smoked meats and sausages; and occasionally there’s coq au Riesling. Among seasonal specialties, check out the rib-sticking cassoulet 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 star, including chocolate mousse, homemade ice creams, crème brûlée or a fresh fruit tart. 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, for instance. If you're done with noisy restaurants, head to Café Alsace.
