Head up to the Palisades for a yummy French/Belgian dinner. This cute and small restaurant offers great service and delicious food.
Start with the baked mussels or the new Demi Homard, Half Lobster with pumpkin puree and farro salad with apples and lemons.
I stuck with a classic for my main course and tried the tender rib-eye.
The new Grand-Mère,venison stew with “grandma” sauce and mashed potatoes is a must-order.
Save room for dessert and taste the Javanais, cacao joconde biscuit with chocolate ganache, coffee cream, and sambuca Chantilly. There's something for everyone.
