THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Gascogne Restaurant Review

: This lovely bistro has stood the test of time with its authentic French cuisine and welcoming, rustically appointed environs. Whether you are seated in the dining room or prefer to momentarily disengage from the hustle and bustle of urban life in the all-seasons garden, enjoy appetizers like the Basque polenta with wild mushrooms, or baked escargots in phyllo with garlic beurre blanc. These savory beginnings may lead to equally memorable stuffed trout with julienne vegetables and lemon herb sauce and a duck confit and sausage stew. The French wine list has some decent and affordable options by the glass.
