Bistro Liaison Restaurant Review

: A festive and diverse crowd fills the tightly packed tables, proof positive that Liaison's French bistro fare is a strong culinary magnet. With a tantalizing list of classic croque sandwiches accompanied by perfectly salted pommes frites, plump mussels coaxed open in an aromatic white wine sauce, or pork with Pernod and dried plums, there's a reason to line up along the curved bar and wait for a table. While you're there, spy on the open kitchen or choose to take a seat outside at the umbrella-spiked tables. A list of apƩritifs is flirtatiously stamped on the crisp paper tablecloths. After dinner, traditional desserts are not to be missed.
