Chez Nous Restaurant Review

: This downtown landmark offers a slice of Paris with its classic French food and casual bistro comfort, 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. Among the standout appetizers: rich pâté maison; savory escargots de Bourgogne in garlic-parsley butter and plump mushrooms; baked goat cheese canapés. For entrées, we recommend the confits de canard, two grilled duck legs accompanied by an apricot-ginger compote, or dayboat scallops with oyster mushrooms and cider cream. Choose 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.
