Love Chez Nanou! Nanou greets you warmly and comes out to your table to chat after the meal--so French! I love it! I am very sad, however, to learn today that Nanou is moving on and Chez Nanou is closing on July 31, 2016. Such...More

I love this place. We go regularly for breakfast/brunch. Their evening offerings are always good and the holiday special meals (reserved in advance) will leave you feeling like you have had a romantic evening in Paris. In terms of quality, and in comparison, with other...More

Our group had brunch here, and everything was perfect. From the simple Brioche French Toast to the fresh salmon omelettes and Croque Madame, each meal was plentiful and authentic. The colorful decor of the fairly tiny restaurant was also pleasing on a sunny Saturday morning....More

So, the markdown comes for the soupe du jour which was reheated in the microwave and not stirred - too hot on one side of the plate, cold on the other. Tasty but this temperature differential should NOT happen. The gratine was ok but should...More

The restaurant is small and cozy. From our table we could see the chef preparing and torching the French onion soup (which was delicious). Everyone who had a salad entree enjoyed it. Two of us had the chicken with oven roasted small potatoes. The house...More
