Cafe Levain Restaurant Review

: Tender beef bourguignon, savory cauliflower-leek beignets, French onion soup that sings with mellow, sweet onion flavor with a bubbly blanket of aged Gruyère, Brussels sprouts roasted to a bewitching caramel: If comfort food is what you seek, then make a reservation at Cafe Levain. In its current incarnation as a down-to-earth neighborhood bistro, American fare is polished to a high yet unpretentious gloss. Complicated, no; honest and forthright, yes. It’s an ideal place for a simple yet elegant weeknight dinner, and we’re partial to the affordable wine list and the storefront-as-farmhouse setting. Don't miss dessert (especially the velvety apple clafouti) since the café is a sibling to the Turtle Bread Co.
