Fodor's Expert Review Kitchen Galerie

$$$ Little Italy French

With its small ingredient-based menu, this homey bistro is an example of excellence through simplicity. The chefs do everything—the shopping, the chopping, the cooking, the greeting, and the serving, and the focus is on meats, fish, and vegetarian dishes all inspired by what local farmers bring to the adjacent Jean-Talon market that morning. The open kitchen turns out classic French bistro market cuisine, including rib-eye steak for two and their now famous pot de foie gras, a foie gras mousse placed in a Mason jar and steam cooked inside a dishwasher for perfect consistency, then served with a muscat gelée.
