Cote Gourmet Restaurant Review: Over the years, this once tiny café in a commercial building has expanded to accommodate locals with sidewalk tables between potted plants. Chef-owner Caroline Poussardin runs Cote Gourmet with the help of her husband and parents (who ran restaurants in Aix-in-Provence). The lunch menu is made up of simple sandwiches, salads, soups, crêpes and pastries, with five or so entrées for dinner. All breads, pastries and desserts are house-made. Both savory and sweet crêpes are Breton-style, made with nutty fermented buckwheat batter that gives character to smoked salmon or melted Brie and spinach fillings. Entrées might include pan-seared rib-eye with Cognac-pepper sauce or tuna and capers in phyllo, perfect before catching a film at the nearby O Cinema.
