Café de la Presse Restaurant Review

: Always bustling, this stylish bistro has outdoor café seating, a cozy bar, an international newsstand and an elegant dining room with wood floors, large mirrors and warm-hued walls. Like the décor, the menu comprises bistro classics made sophisticated. The tarte au saumon arrives slathered with horseradish cream and topped with capers, red onion and strips of pink salmon. A cocktail de crevettes is less shrimp cocktail and more Provençal, with jumbo shrimp, avocado, grapefruit, cherry tomato and romaine. Order authentic French fare if you like: the boeuf bourguignon is saucy and rich, the sea bass more diminutive, flanked by tender vegetables. Feeling festive? Spring for a bottle of bubbly. Waiters in black and white deliver both the bottle and a towering ice bucket, meaning that no matter your budget you'll feel like French royalty.
