Cafe Normandie Restaurant Review

: Inexpensive yet authentic French cuisine is served in an unpretentious, relaxed setting. French-owned Café Normandie offers quick in-and-out lunch staples such as quiche Lorraine, salade niçoise, stuffed croissants, crêpes, and crunchy-edged baguette sandwiches. Dinners take it a little more upscale, with hearty renditions of escargots de Bourgogne, boeuf bourguignon, sea bass with Normandie cream sauce and canard aux pêches, most dishes priced under $20. Tables are closely set and noise levels can get high. The wine list is short but appropriately priced, and the waitstaff is breezily efficient and friendly. Finish a meal with tarte Tatin, a classic velvety crème brûlée or crêpes with choice of sugar, Nutella or jam.
