Cafe Routier Restaurant Review

: Its playful French name means “truck stop,” but we bet you’ve never found cedar-smoked duck breast or grilled trout during a spontaneous pullover. The menu --- divided into three panels showcasing regional, seasonal and specialty starters and main courses --- is something you should intend to savor. Or, for a lighter fill-up, the Mood Lounge menu features pub grub and tapas. The one thing you simply can’t miss? House-made fries with secret dipping sauce.
