The French Gourmet Restaurant Review

: When we want to feel like we're dining in Paris, we meet friends for brunch at The French Gourmet. Classical music, hand-painted murals, fresh flowers and intimately placed tables provide the setting for romance. “Never rush l'amour or la cuisine” tops each menu, and the wait is worth it. Brunch specialties include onion soup, house-baked croissants and brioche, eggs Benedict lutèce and Lina's ultimate omelet filled with ham, turkey, mushrooms, Swiss cheese, onions and peppers. The café also custom-roasts its own coffee. The dinner menu features classics of the French repertoire, including bouillabaisse, coq au vin and red snapper en papillote. The in-house pastry chef excels in her preparation of tartlets and cakes. Beverages include a large selection of all-natural French syrups, including black currant (cassis), blue Curaçao (tropical orange), almond (orgeat) and pistachio. The wines by the glass are limited but nice; meanwhile, the cocktail menu includes the violet martini, Grey Goose and Noilly Prat. Beer options are few but available. In European tradition, The French Gourmet is closed from 2 p.m.-5 p.m.
