Pomme Frite Restaurant Review: Owner Jean-Claude Constant has made this the place to drop in if you need a hit of the authentic French-Belgian bistro experience. There's good people-watching from the little sidewalk patio or through the lace window curtains that might have come straight from Bruges. The food, coupled with a long list of Belgian beers, completes the sensation that you have somehow stumbled from the desert into a small town somewhere in France or Belgium and found a good local café. Constant is Belgian, and mussels are the main event, with a choice of seven different preparations. There is a value prix-fixe menu that changes regularly (and isn't offered on Saturdays), and a satisfying range of à la carte items. For summer, Constant offers a changing roster of cold and fruit soups. If you choose the prix-fixe menu, he rotates his most popular desserts, and they are all equally good. Conversely, there is a baba au rhum on the regular menu that is worth a walk on the à la carte side.
