The Short Order
Fans of French bistro food will swarm to Ze French Bistro — once the word is out. The cooking, presentation, and ingredients are excellent, which you can expect with chef Laurent Rea at the kitchen’s helm. A modern ambience, excellent prices (including a four-course prix fixe menu for $21), seasonal outdoor dining, and great food add up to a memorable experience. Recommended: onion and brie tart, tuna and salmon tartare, seafood vol-au-vent, flat iron steak, seared duck breast — well, I seem to be recommending everything. You can take it from there!
