Four of us enjoyed our evening at La Cuisine French Resturant. Two ordered the the beef Bourgogne and it was delisious, even the next day leftovers. The stuffed mushroom got rave reviews as did the steak. A little pricey, but worth it.

They did have foie gras the last time I was there. The entrees are country French, not Parisian French. So think stews and lamb shank.
