Bistro Campagne Restaurant Review

: This Lincoln Square restaurant has stayed true to its original form over the years. As such, it remains a simple, organic bistro and neighborhood favorite. It has a cozy, woody décor, and the compact, mostly French menu wisely is affordable --- a fact that proves pleasing for singles and young families. Many guests gravitate toward the steak tartare and Belgian mussels to start, followed by the classic Lyonnaise salad. Look for seasonal changes like a Berkshire pork chop with cornmeal cake and sweet corn come summertime and duck confit in the fall. Steak frites are available year-round. There’s even a kids’ menu with smaller portions of vegetables and a macaroni gratin. For dessert, only the crème brûlée or pot de crème au chocolat will do. Decent wines, a nice selection of craft beers and helpful, friendly service round out the picture. The walled garden is one of the loveliest in town, and a close proximity to the Old Town School of Folk Music means that musicians occasionally stop by to play and sing --- for their supper or at least the joy of performing.
