This cozy little bistro artfully mixes the classic and the imaginative in a menu that shows a predilection for fish and seafood. Appetizers are where the flair shows the most, as in the smoked salmon blind or the tender, garlicky escargot in a hollowed baked potato.
Desserts, too, are lively: the soft, chewy, spicy gingerbread, topped with a poached pear served warm and ringed with a caramel sauce, was worth the trip and cost only $4.50. Reservations a must.
