    It's been one of our favorites forever and the perfect place to go when I'm missing France in a big way. Last night we were very happy to be able to sit outside on the side porch with perfect weather and ambiance. Kenzie, our server was fantastic, there when we needed her but not hovering. I started with Sebastian's excellent Marvin the Martian cocktail. Hubby had a gin French 75 and friend an Aperol Spritz. To start we shared an order of escargots and fried oysters with celeriac remoulade - yum! Friend and I both had the pan seared sheepshead - hers with lentils and a smoked tomato coulis and mine with couscous, asparagus and a beurre blanc sauce. Hubby had braised short ribs. All excellent along with paired wines. A lovely sancerre for the fish and a red (don't remember what kind) for the spare ribs. A shared Flottante for dessert accompanied by an espresso and cappuccino. A truly wonderful evening. We will be back!

    Café Degas is always outstanding! I highly recommend the Pate sheep head and French mimosas.
