Le Petit Restaurant Restaurant Review

: This intimate, inviting restaurant approximates the look and vibe of an authentic Parisian bistro, where long-aproned waiters deliver modestly priced French comfort food to a mostly neighborhood clientele that has remained loyal through several ownership transitions. Walls with vintage beverage posters and Renoir-esque murals surround a collection of cozy, candlelit tables topped with white linen and butcher paper. A subtle North African influence is telegraphed by a plate of hummus, tapenade and harissa that arrives with the crusty bread after you are seated. We recommend beginning with garlicky escargots, blue crab cakes with pimento tartar sauce, onion soup or black mussels in a white wine broth. Entrées include Provençal-style roasted chicken or entrecôte with pommes frites, baked lamb shank with couscous, and miniature lamb chops in a creamy mustard sauce that are the epitome of simple, satisfying bistro cuisine. A serviceable bottle of refreshing Sancerre or earthy Côte du Rhône is available at a fair price, and for dessert, try the pot au chocolat or hazelnut pecan bourbon tarte.
