New Feature!



The sister restaurant to the more formal Le Bouchon, La Sardine is a warmer version of classic French cuisine. Dark wood and brass replace crystal and soft color while the open, bustling kitchen beckons with culinary treasures. Choose from rotisserie meats and game, grilled steak with pommes frites (French fries) and leek with bacon tart. The Lyonaisse salad with its croutons is a fan favorite and the desserts, especially the souffl�, get rave reviews. While not often available, the scallops as the special appetizer of the day is delicious. Le Sardine also features an excellent all French wine list. Surprisingly affordable.

Ten Best Logo 03 Local Expert Says:

"Get in early on Tuesday because the fixed price menu is a great deal and the place is always pack, regardless of the weather."

Best for French Because: Check out the daily specials like $1 oysters on Fridays or a three-course prixe-fixe menu for $27.50 that includes anything from the menu on Tuesdays.
