***** (5 stars)
This bistro serves authentic French bistro food in a modern decor or a pleasant covered outside dining area.
The early evening three course prix fixe menu is an excellent deal, and includes so of the best menu selections.
Duck confit was perfectly crisped, served with a lightly dressed frisee salad.
Salmon was perfectly browned and served over some marvelous vegetables.
Two classic desserts round out the prix fixe menu.
The wine list focuses on affordable French wines, with a limited selection by the glass.
Service was friendly and efficient.
While the ambiance is not traditional, of the French bistros in River North, this is my favorite for food.
