Comfort comes in many guises at this French bakery/restaurant. Nibble on Parisian sweets, including macaroons in more than a dozen flavors, in the downstairs cafe. Or dine upstairs, choosing from an ever-changing roster of dishes such as duck confit, seafood fricassee, steak au poivre, and coq au vin. A sidewalk cafe and upstairs patio are sublime spots to dine alfresco.
