THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED La Cigale Restaurant Review

: This is a tiny taste of France tucked into a storefront off Rittenhouse Square. Bright blue walls spark the rather Spartan décor punctuated by bentwood chairs and café tables. Salads such as the Monegasque, consisting of mesclun, artichokes, Roquefort and walnuts, or a classic niçoise are always good, as are the panini. There’s also a classic pan bagnat of fresh vegetables. Have an espresso or hot chocolate, naturellement.
