Chez Alexandre & Fils Restaurant Review

: Alexandre & Fils is a faithful rendition of a French brasserie, complete with brass fittings, leather banquettes, red velvet and, in the summertime, rattan chairs on the terrace. Even the waiters, dressed in black pants, white shirts and black bow ties, can be very Parisian in attitude, in a sometimes gruff, sometimes exuberant, yet always effective way. Open late every day, this restaurant, which also features an upstairs pub, can be a bit of a party place. The menu covers all the French bases, from soupe à l’oignon and escargots to steak tartare, cassoulet, sauerkraut, boudin, duck confit or even grilled marrow bones with Guérande salt. The wine list is long, with Bordeaux and Burgundy leading the way. Desserts follow down the same path, with crème caramel, nougat glace, chocolat mousse and crème brûlée.

Exquisite Food & Service!

I was refered to Chez Alexandre because I wanted to have some delicious French Cuisine, but I also wanted a quiet atmosphere with great food and service. I was even personally greeted by the owner, Alain Creton, who introduced me to exquisite cuisine. Would definately go there again and refer my friends!
