This sliver of a restaurant just a stone’s throw from Sara D. Roosevelt Park offers rustic farmhouse french dishes with “New American” touches. Chef/owner Karim Nounouh emphasizes quality, locally sourced ingredients. The space is cozy and charming. There are copper pots on the walls, a curved wood plank ceiling. Service is efficient and friendly. Flavor combinations are sometimes successful — sometimes not. Entrees range from $16-28.
