THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Margaux Restaurant Review

: This sun-soaked corner café in an off-the-beaten-restaurant-path part of downtown St. Paul is inviting, warm and worth a visit. French flair adds a touch of quiet class (lovely artwork, linens on the table), while an open kitchen sizzles with action and evocative scents. Its menu is a nice mix of sophistication (scallops dressed in vanilla cream sauce) and comfort (chicken potpie). Befitting a neighborhood brasserie, you can get a heck of a hamburger---we’re partial to the one served with Gouda and a piquantly mustard-y sauce---and a good Belgian beer as well as a fresh, perfect-for-sharing niçoise salad and a glass of French wine. During dinnertime, entrées include “chicken under a brick,” a crispy favorite, or pricier fish options like seared halibut. We’ve always had good luck when it comes to desserts, especially when we order anything with lemon.
