Celebrate life with the Capsouto Brothers
An open, welcoming space conducive to conversation, you always feel welcome and like you are ""celebrating life."" The most apt description I can imagine is ""a room full of pleasantness"". High end French Bistro fare served with imagination and amazing service, well trained an eager to please, it is a great place for family, friends, dates, business or celebrations. The Slad Belle Chaumiere, e.g. is always filled with fresh greens and endive, garnished with Mandarin Oranges and nuts with a light but tasty homemade dressing. The Filet is the juicy, melt in your mouth experience you never seem to be able to replicate at home, and there are rarities to find such as venison or quail. They send over interesting little tidbits before and after the meal; a square of homemade quiche or Pate on Melba Toast garnished in an interesting fashion. But you really go there for the souflee, which you order before the meal, (it is made fesh for each order, while you dine), with old standbys like chocolate and hazlenut, (a MUST!) and specials like ""red""orange. At $9.50 each, a bargain. Each will serve 2 or 3.
You feel like you are dining at a high end ""joint"", but you don't have to spend a weeks pay to do it. In an industrial part of the city, is unexpectedly quiet and easy to park within a block or two every night of the week. So to come in for ""a special night"", (be it date, birthday, (mine every year), business meeting and it is convenient without the hassles of midtown dining. Others describe occasional impertinance, but I've NEVER seen anything but joy there. A great place to introduce the kids to the joys of fine dining. The well trained waitstaff tries to point you in any direction to further your enjoyment, while Sammy, a Capsouto brother circulates to ensure you are enjoying yourself and feel welcome without being intrusive. They end your meal with cokkies and candied orange or lemon rind. (And they'll give you some to take home if you ask.) Come! Celebrate life!
