La Cote Basque Winehouse Restaurant Review: La Cote Basque Winehouse is snuggled into a residential side-city to St. Petersburg and has been serving consistently fine French food for nearly 30 years. Locals have fond memories of intimate, romantic (read: dark) meals here; the menu is limited but reliable and the service is equally embracing. Décor is old European, with fancy tablecloths and lace curtains, and every effort is made to suggest a quiet French country restaurant. French onion soup is an old-fashioned version piled high with cheese and croutons, served in a small brown oven-proof bowl. The restaurant is also noted for its Kir royale. Early Bird choices include Flounder Francais (sautéed in a sherry and lemon sauce). Entrées include lamb chops and shrimp scampi. We also suggest the veal, either veal crêpes as an appetizer or veal Cordon Bleu as an entrée. Desserts are what you might expect: chocolate mousse or cheesecake.
