THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Vintage Bistro Restaurant Review

: A true bistro, with monsieur in the kitchen and madame in the dining room, this charming little place almost seems to hide away. There is no sign, only a discreetly lettered awning to mark the spot, a small brick building with diamond-paned windows and wood-and-plaster accents. The menu is completely à la carte, and includes both small dishes such as duck confit with honey-almond glaze; smoked salmon with whole-grain mustard; and fried oysters on horseradish cream sauce. Main dishes are rack of lamb with basil mashed potatoes; filet mignon on wilted spinach with roasted garlic sauce; and roasted pheasant with a goat cheese and pepper crêpe. There is usually a choice of three soups, and the salads, ranging from Caesar to Belgian endive and watercress, are lovely. A number of wines are available by the glass. A succession of booths and tables covered in blue-and-white checked bistro cloths seat just 50, with appropriate background music, artwork and posters to add to the French sensibility. Chef-proprietor Jon-Louis Seavitt changes the menu three or four times a year, but it is never a wholesale overhaul. Certain dishes remain, including one he and his wife, Gloria, have served from day one: ground sirloin with grilled bananas and horseradish cream sauce. Turkish apple strudel with raisin compote and fresh fruit cobbler are among four fresh desserts.
