Z Cuisine Bistrot & Parisian Wine Bar Restaurant Review

: This is the kind of food you'd be eating if you had a French grandfather who loved to cook---hearty cassoulets, game terrines and, of course, both sweet and savory crêpes. French-born chef Patrick DuPays, who owns Z Cuisine and the next door wine bar, Z Cuisine À Côté, along with his wife, Lynnde, is a master of French home cooking. A huge chalkboard menu announces what's for dinner. Summer or winter, we start with soup. Lobster bisque, creamy leek and carrot or vichyssoise are always first-rate. Cassoulet maison is a bubbling casserole of white beans laced with bacon and garnished with duck leg confit. Also try the gratin of wild mushrooms with spinach, cheese and rivers of cream. For dessert, we suggest sweet crêpes with dark chocolate and caramelized bananas or a simple wine-poached pear. Rustic tables, a mismatch of wooden dining chairs, big windows looking out onto a quiet side street and the beautifully haunting voice of Edith Piaf fill in the background. Most of the silver-leaf on the mirror over the bar has peeled off, contributing to Z Cuisine's vintage look. The wine list is short, mostly French and pairs well with the food.
