Charming, reasonably priced French bistro in Old Town.

Our Review

This Old Town restaurant's five dining rooms (some private) and two bars evoke turn-of-the-century Paris, with rich cranberry walls, Tiffany-like sconces, and black-and-white tiled floors. Photos of owner Joe Doppes's daughter, for whom the place was named, adorn the walls. While the rooms are cozy, they border on claustrophobic; tables are close and servers just squeeze by. But this doesn't detract from the reasonably priced classic fare. Doppes shows his mastery of French cuisine with classics such as moules marinieres, steak frites, and some savory patés. Even the salade du bistrot is worth a try: Boston lettuce combined with fresh spinach, bacon, and egg, all dressed in a walnut vinaigrette and tossed to perfection. Service is knowledgeable and attentive but too quick; our courses kept overlapping, making for a speedy visit. The brunch menu includes pain perdu, Belgian waffles, and eggs Benedict as well as lunch entrees.
