La Bretagne Restaurant Review

: La Bretagne is where to head when you're in the mood for a good bottle of wine, well-executed soups and classic French cuisine. This is one of those places that knowledgeable locals always recall after they've had a so-so meal somewhere else, to their regret. Those seeking the latest fusion trend or the next culinary hotspot will do well to remember that old is not always past its prime. Start with the savory mussels bisque or the soothing leek and potato soup served cold. Entrées such as the savory frogs’ legs sautéed in garlic butter and the rich veal kidneys in a brandy cream and Dijon mustard are traditional French selections that are increasingly difficult to find elsewhere at this level of authenticity in style and preparation.
