If an impromptu flight to Paris is out of the cards, Once Upon a Time in France is the quickest way to transport yourself from Music City to the City of Lights. Straight out of the 1920s Parisian bistro playbook, this small restaurant is owned by a local French family who prides themselves on serving unfussy French classics - think escargot, steak tartare, and duck confit. Reservations aren’t accepted here, so arrive early, grab a chilled glass of Sancerre, and take in some quality people-watching.
