Coquette Cafe Restaurant Review

: Co-owners Nick Burki and Chris Hatleli serve up bistro fare in relaxed surroundings inside an historic building that mimics a Parisian café. French staples dominate the menu, including classics like French onion soup with melted Gruyère, baked Burgundy snails in garlic-parsley butter, coq au vin and bacon-wrapped veal meatloaf. Desserts are no less indulgent; try the meringue snow eggs with caramel sauce, the sorbet du jour or the profiteroles filled with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce. Each month, special offerings feature the cuisine of a single non-French country, such as Jamaica (banana ice cream and smoked pork shoulder with Jamaican jerk sauce, anyone?).
