Rue Cler Restaurant Review: Rue Cler recalls the casual bistros that line the famous Paris market street for which this establishment is named. Dishes are traditional French fare and, like its counterparts, the eatery takes no reservations. Just drop in for classics such as a Niçoise salad, a buttery pâté, steak frites, roast chicken, moules frites and soupe à l’oignon gratinée, as well as seasonal specialties like pan-seared scallops with a tomato vinaigrette or pork chops with French lentils and a red pepper caper sauce. The nightly three-course prix-fixe dinner is a bargain at $35. Don’t skip dessert. The chocolate terrine and delicate crêpes conclude a meal in the same fashion in which it began. The wine list, true to character, focuses on moderately priced French wines. Servers are fully up to speed on the wines, which complement the food.
