L’Ardoise is on their A-game when it comes to the French classics. We’re particularly partial to the steak and coq au vin, but if you’re more of a seafood person the fish is all well-done too. It’s a very cozy spot that isn’t on most people’s radars. Turn on your escargot radar and locate L’Ardoise as soon as possible.
