Le Cercle Restaurant Review

: More than just a restaurant in a cultural quarter, Le Cercle encourages its patrons to eat, drink and participate in the spirit of old-time European coffeehouses. The restaurant features group and à la carte lunches, dinners and brunches. We suggest the "Picnic" starter of charcuterie, cheese and pickled vegetables, but you can't go wrong with the foie gras. If you're good at sharing, the dishes for two are also worthwhile: a half duck served with foie gras and maple gastrique, a paella platter with seafood, duck confit and homemade chorizo, or an enormous pork chop with tomato gremolata and roasted piglet belly. Le Cercle is also a concept where on-the-edge cultural events take place alongside a unique dining experience. The restaurant offers a selection of imported wines.
