Le Pichet Restaurant Review: With its tile floors and dark banquettes, this narrow dining room seems to be plucked straight from the Left Bank of Paris. Owned and managed by chef Jim Drohman with his business partner Joanne Herron, Le Pichet (translated to "pitcher") offers four menus: Le Déjeuner (lunch), Le Dîner (dinner), La Charcuterie (various meats) and Le Casse Croûte (assorted snacks). Dishes change throughout the year, but count on charcuterie such as pâtés, sausages, and smoked or cured meats. During colder winter months, look for gratin Lyonnaise. Whole chickens are roasted to order, and may be accompanied by wild mushrooms, mustard greens and Cantal cheese cream sauce. Daily specials, along with assorted cheeses and desserts, are listed on blackboards. The wine selections --- served by the glass from ceramic "pichets" or by the bottle --- are first-rate and fairly priced.
