Fun French Dining

Walking into Café Beaujolais I noticed the waiters all wore t-shirts that read “Everything French, but the Attitude.” The word “but” has an X over it and the word “Even” is underneath.

This is a place where the French waiters (they all have the accent) smile and are friendly. Their attitude is charming.  The French music in the background transforms you into a little café in Paris.

We always order a Kir Royal, (Champagne and Cassis) because it’s what the French drink while they peruse the menu.  Everything is written in French with the English translation underneath.

Slices of French bread and butter are delivered to the table while we waited for the Gratinee a l’onion – French Onion Soup and a salad de fromage de chevre chaud – goat cheese salad with mixed greens and tomatoes. Our Les Entrees included Pave de Boeuf au porto et Roquefort – Filet of beef with port sauce and Roquefort on top and the Le fletan au champagne – Filet of halibut in a champagne sauce with a parmesan sauce. Scrumptious.

For dessert the Tarte Tatin with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream is better than Mom’s homemade apple pie.  It’s thick chunks of baked apple on a delicate crust with a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg.  

Located at 1712 Colorado Blvd. Eagle Rock (323)255-5111.  They don’t take reservations, but you can call first to see if they have available tables.
