This French spot in the West Loop comes from the same team as Beatnik and Bambola. Coquette’s interior is like sitting in a giant kaleidoscope. Bright pink tiles and tall stained glass panels surround the space, and chandeliers that look like grapes decorate the ceiling. Soft French music plays, which could (in theory) be relaxing—but this bar still feels like sensory overload.

While the space is overwhelming, the food is the opposite. The short menu is filled with small bites and mains—none of which are very good. And the dishes are often imbalanced, like the oeufs et oursins which has too much potato foam and shredded truffle, overpowering the duck scrambled eggs and uni. When flavor isn't an issue, there are other hitches, like rubbery steak, or foie gras in stale potato cones. At least the wine is good. So if you somehow end up here, sip on a glass or two while the bartender spins some French vinyl.
