Bistro La Minette is a little too fancy for a casual weeknight meal, but not quite special enough to go out of your way for a celebration or important date night. What it is perfect for, though, is a first date at the bar during Happy Hour. Until 7pm every weeknight, they do $2 beers, $3 wines, $4 kirs, and half-priced appetizers. It’s exactly what you want for a low-commitment meeting when you aren’t sure exactly how the night’s going to play out.
