French 75 is becoming seriously French again. It was on its way when Dave Shofner became the chef but now with the collaboration of master chef Pascal Olhats, it has arrived, along with a recession-busting $10 entrée menu called "The Perfect 10." We've never seen the place so busy on a weeknight. Is it the $10 menu or has everyone had his fill of fusion and fallen back in love with French cuisine?
The terrace was closed in the very chilly weather, but the ambiance inside was warm, welcoming and bustling with conviviality. If the buzz from the bar and the sounds of the live jazz are not your cup of tea, ask to be seated in one of the two side rooms for something a bit quieter. The lighting is soft enough to knock a few years off your visage, the leather booths are roomy and comfortable and the wait staff is highly professional and attentive.
