Mon Ami Gabi does some very good French food, in a traditional, big French bistro-ish setting. We’re fans of the overall vibes here, and it’s a good place for a nice date or a family dinner. Steak frites is the move because red meat and fries is always the move, no matter what language the menu is written in.
