French Corner Cafe Restaurant Review

: Located near the entrance of an expansive mini mall, this bistro delivers good French fare despite its not-so-French location. Owner Marc Davy and his pastry chef brother, Aimeric, who trained with Pierre Hermé, created this all-day dining spot. Homemade quiche, croquettes and salads dominate the lunch menu, while frogs’ legs and escargots add something special to the evening offerings. The cheese course makes a fine starter. There are also crêpes and a classic steak frites, and weekly specials range from coq au vin to cassoulet. As for desserts, select from the display of colorful macarons, which almost look too good to eat. Expect Champagne and more French wines.
