Chez Nous Restaurant Review

: This downtown landmark offers a slice of Paris with its classic French food and casual bistro ambience, bereft of pretense. The lacy curtains, tiny flower-filled anisette bottles and flickering candles easily draw in romantics, but even cynics are attracted to the elegantly constructed dishes. Chez Nous doesn’t partake in the roller-coaster highs and lows of trendy spots, staying firmly entrenched as a staple among Austin diners. Yet somehow, the three-course, prix-fixe dinner menu remains among the best-kept secrets in town. Standout appetizers are the rich pâté maison, the savory escargots de Bourgogne bathing in garlic-parsley butter and plump mushrooms, and the baked goat cheese canapés. Fresh baguettes magically appear in your basket. We also recommend the confits de canard, two grilled duck legs accompanied by a dried cherry and red onion marmalade with a balsamic syrup, and the quintessential French dessert, mousse au chocolat. The wine list, exclusively French, ranges from versatile, low-priced table wines to premier cru, and knowledgeable servers will pair the appropriate wine to your menu selections.
