Le Parisien Restaurant Review

: This rustic little bistro’s slightly worn wooden chairs and tables, vintage French advertisements hanging on its walls, painted tin ceiling and cluster of wine bottles collected by the front entrance provide an apropos backdrop for a classic menu of French fare. Appetizers include escargots in garlic herb butter and a delicately flavorful French onion soup. Prince Edward Island mussels, served with a side of french fries, come in a variety of ways: "marinières," a garlic and white wine broth worth considering; and "Parisienne" with saffron and mustard cream. Specialties like sautéed calf's liver and caramelized onion in a sherry thyme jus and Le Parisien steak tartare are reminiscent of traditional bistro selections. French regional wines complement the dishes.
