Paris 66 Bistro Restaurant Review: Framed prints line cheerful yellow walls and vintage Paris postcards are clustered under glass tabletops. Owners Lori and France-born Federic Rongier partner with cultural and educational organizations such as the Alliance Francaise to create a true bistro experience. Initially a crêperie, the bistro has expanded its “every night French cuisine” to a full menu of appetizers (beef carpaccio, herb-crusted salmon), mains (mussel, steak and chicken frites, Provencal shrimp and pan-seared tuna) and desserts (including classics such as crème brûlée). All is house-made, with notable connections to local producers. The specialty of the house is the galette, a thicker crêpe, common to Brittany, made from organic buckwheat with savory filling. Try La Paris 66 (ham, Swiss cheese, egg, mushroom, tomato Provencal) or La Champs Elysées (creamed leeks and smoked salmon). There is also a gluten-free menu. Pricing is reasonable, and the wine list stresses French labels.
