L'Express Restaurant Review

: Whether it's breakfast at 3 a.m. or a sandwich in the late afternoon, L'Express is a lively cut above your average 24-hour diner. Adopted Gallic dishes like moules marinière or Lyonnaise quenelles (pike dumpling with shellfish and tomato sauce) keep company on the menu with American staples of hamburgers and omelets that will fuel you all night. Unlike a true French restaurant, L'Express is an unpretentious spot that won't break the bank. The décor is vaguely French and perfectly appealing, and the eatery is lively at almost any hour.
