Chicago >Paris Club
The best nightcap after a French bistro nosh at Paris Club is a visit to the second floor. It's at Studio Paris where you can dance off your steak frites and not feel ancient as a thirtysomething.
A fantastic new brunch menu features soft scramble eggs with lobster, smoked salmon Benedict and waffles slathered with cookie butter. Make sure to get a champagne cocktail to start.
This place is for you if you like the scene. It's hip, trendy, filled with pretty people and has a retractable roof.
Good Food. Good Food. Good Atmosphere.
Doesn't leave your wanting 'amour'.... I happened to stumble into Paris Club on an early weekday evening (think blue plate special time) soon after this place opened. The place started out quiet with a few patrons but 2 hours in was full of the white noise of a great restaurant: laughter, tinkling of forks and corks popping here and there. The menu reminded of the the French bistros my friend and I experienced on our 2 1/2 week trip in France a few years back. Think: classic french fare with a modern interpretation of a french palate. The food was small plates style, meant to be shared and prices that won't leave you thinking that an extra shift looms in your future. The flavors were bold, rich and confident, just how I like my Parisians. The ambiance was laid back and elegant; no white linen table cloths, waiters in stuffy suits or kitchy eiffel towers in sight! I'd highly recommend this to a friend looking for great french food that you'd find in Europe, not the fancy pants places we're so used to thinking of when someone says 'French Food'
