Celebrated my birthday with family over dinner at Le Petit Cafe in September. All of the food was spectacular. I’m really happy to know there is a restaurant of this caliber outside New Haven. Will return!

Wonderful French food! You will feel like you are in a quaint Parisian bistro. Duck confit and lamb chops were cooked to perfection and the creme brûlée was outstanding!
