Cafe des Beaux Arts Restaurant Review

: It's not Paris, but El Paseo is where the desert's well-heeled come to shop and dine. Often you'll spot them at Café des Beaux Arts, the charming corner bistro that celebrates French cuisine. The fare includes an average --- and sometimes better than average --- array of traditional dishes, including rabbit Dijonnaise and the house specialty bouillabaisse. The long and inclusive menu features standout items such as a very acceptable lamb Provençale and duck with fig sauce. The elegant lounge area, with its mix of cozy booths and horseshoe-shaped bar, is the perfect place to nosh on small plates as you summon up the spirit of Edith Piaf. If you want to see and be seen, request a table on the wraparound patio, where a parade of passersby are in full view.
