Cafe Campagne Restaurant Review: Simple wooden tables and distressed amber-colored walls adorned with vintage French advertising posters set the scene at this downtown bistro that could be transplanted from Paris. Tucked into Post Alley, Café Campagne has a softly lit bar that offers seating for a coterie of regulars, and ranks as one of our favorite venues when dining alone. When dining with the one we love, we snuggle into a corner banquette, listen to Piaf, and share a split of Champagne. We recommend the red wine-braised chicken, steamed mussels and strip steak dressed with a richly flavored garlic/Madeira sauce and paired with frites. For a sweet finish, consider the crème brûlée topped with a pistachio cookie. The wine list offers both Northwest and French vintages, and libations from the full bar are available, too. If you chance upon a sunny day, dine outside in the small sidewalk patio area.
