Bistro Moulin Restaurant Review:

Dinner at Bistro Moulin feels like being swept away to a small café in the heart of Strasbourg. The intimate dining room --- home to about ten tables --- romances with country-style tablecloths, glowing chandeliers, walls lined with French and California wines (available for purchase) and shabby chic décor. Chef Federico Rusciano, who is also a sommelier, has taken over ownership. The menu offers classic appetizers such as piping-hot French onion soup and escargots soaked in garlic and hazelnut butter. Homemade gnocchi aux epinards are fluffy, potato-less pillows of zest that get better with every bite. You might continue with filet mignon flamed with Cognac and served with peppercorn demi-glace, roasted baby carrots and potato purée. Expect a little decadence for dessert, including crème brûlée and profiteroles filled with vanilla ice cream and draped with chocolate sauce.
