Unapologetically French, the menu at this cozy little restaurant has items from both la mer (the sea) and le terroir (the earth), with choices that range from lobster tails and grilled swordfish to hanger steak and couscous merguez. Sometimes you just want to conjure up an Old World experience, and La Fourchette delivers just that with an amazing wine list of distinctive regional selections and a menu of French classics (duck l’orange, anyone?). It’s pretty romantic in here too, with soft lighting, intimate seating, and sexy food. We love the mussels and frites combo, particularly because the frites get cooked in duck fat. The French shepherd’s pie (haché parmentier) and the grilled hanger steak (le steak frites salad) are also good choices.

Hearty French peasant food. Don't miss the cassoulet and the housemade duck pâté.
