La Piquette’s name refers to a type of affordable wine found throughout France, setting the tone for the casual but still delicious French fare served at this popular eatery. In fact, this fairly new restaurant might just be one of the most popular dining options near Cathedral Commons, serving up a laid-back weekend brunch, light lunch fare all afternoon, and indulgent dinner options every evening.
You’ll find French fare favorites like fromage platters, pan-seared foie gras, and an inventive selection of meats and seafood items, all accompanied by elegant appetizers and sides. True to French form, there is also a beautiful selection of pastries and rich desserts to end the meal and an extensive wine list with bottles from all over the world.
La Piquette’s dim, cozy dining room will remind you of the neighborhood cafes found on every Parisian street corner, and while it can get quite busy at peak hours, you can easily make a reservation using the convenient website.
