Au contraire.This is your classic, everyday neighborhood French bistro run by Chef Paul Magu-Lecugy & his wife, Laura. That kind of cozy little place you’d imagine in Saint Michel or Saint Germain.

We’re talking authentic French onion soup. Steamed mussels. Steak frites. And don’t forget creme brulee… 2021 & 2022 Michelin recognized Open Table guest favorite 2017-2023
