We usually have the Country Paté plate (sour cornichon pickles with homemade paté and salad) and the Croque Madame sandwich (ham, melted gruyere, egg on top), but today everything was so good I had to write a review. Try the new chocolate bread pudding (they gave us a side of homemade caramel sauce as well) and don't miss the very-French tasting, simple mussels. The prices (at lunch) seem less expensive than other downtown Lenox restaurants, and they are open more often. The bistro atmosphere is bright and it can get crowded, with tables close together in the French manner. Both the espresso and the coffee are very good and the service was super efficient without being pushy. The salads/greens are dressed very simply, so you might want to ask for more dressing on the side. We don't usually need a reservation at lunch, and will be back soon to try the dinner menu.
