Ghyslain on Market Restaurant Review

: Coffee brewed in a French press --- how it’s served at Ghyslain (pronounced "Gee-sleigh") --- is the perfect accompaniment to the pastry produced in the bakery. Morning options include freshly baked croissants (butter, almond or chocolate) and brioche french toast along with other breakfast items such as various omelets. From the patio just outside the front door, share the crumbs of your baked goods with the local sparrows. Inside, order from the counter and your meal will be delivered to your table. Lunch and dinner menus offer fare like corn chowder, croque monsieur, chicken curry naan and French dip au jus. Wine from a variety of producing regions is available by the glass and bottle, and there are beers. Proprietor Ghyslain Maurais is a chocolatier as well as a chef, and shelves near the entrance are lined with his artful chocolate creations. Expect house-made gelati, too. Also located at 1215 Herr Lane, Ste. 101, Westport Village, 502-690-6001; and 416 N. 10th St., Richmond, Ind., 765-966-3344.
