This modern French spot in the West Loop comes from the same team as Beatnik and Bambola. Coquette’s interior is a little like sitting in a giant kaleidoscope. Bright pink circular tiles and tall stained glass panels surround the space, while chandeliers that look like grapes decorate the ceiling. Soft French music plays, creating a relaxing atmosphere for couples having dinner, or friends grabbing post-work drinks at the bar. 

But though the cute space is fun, their food isn’t. The short menu is filled with small bites and mains. And the dishes are often imbalanced, like the oeufs et oursins which has an overwhelming amount of potato foam and shredded truffle, overpowering the duck scrambled eggs and uni. When the food tastes fine, there are other issues, like rubbery steak, or foie gras in stale potato cones. But the wine is good, so skip eating here and sip on a glass or two while the bartender spins some French vinyl.
