A wonderful French bistro located in Lake Zurich. This is a cozy restaurant with tables mostly well-spaced and positioned throughout an intimate interior. The bistro features monthly specials which are usually worthwhile, along with featuring a good prix-fixe option everyday. The goat cheese salad is outstanding with a soy vinaigrette, the November Cassoulet de Carcassone is a wonderful meal to commemorate fall. Don’t resist the Apple Tarte if offered for dessert. As expected, there us a very good selection of very reasonable but very good wines, especially from France but from other regions as well. Visited February 2014.
What a great surprise! This restaurant prides itself on using all fresh ingredients to create seasonally inspired meals and it works. Wonderful appetizers such as Sonoma Goat Cheese Ravioli with roasted garlic and fresh basil and Grilled Chipotle Chicken Skewers with spicy BBQ sauce, summer corn relish and guacamole all deliver spectacular flavor and make you feel that your are eating conscientiously. Flat breads are also spectacular, especially the Ripe Plum Tomato Flatbread with fresh basil, roasted garlic and melted Parmesan cheese. The flatbreads are definitely big enough to share with 2-3 table mates. Entrees are equally nice, and at the end of the meal, the desserts are “mini indulgences”, small portions designed to let you know the meal is over – very satisfying but not overwhelming. The service, atmosphere and wine selections were also exemplary. Give this restaurant a try. Visited February 2014
