Described as an "unpretentious" French bistro, this swanky bistro- pub blends Old World charm with delectable French cuisine in an elegant setting. The site of a former Irish pub, the bar - which offers more casual dining - and restaurant are divided into separate areas, each displaying a chic blend of tiled floors and beautiful carved wood throughout. Circa 1875 offers an ample selection of boutique wines, imported draught beer, time-honored cocktails and "designer" martinis. Those visiting the gastropub will enjoy the menu, which includes a mouthwatering selection of traditional French cuisine including escargot and pâté as starters, followed by main dishes like steak frites or cassoulet. Mussels steeped in fennel, shallots, and white wine (ask for extra bread to sop up the delicious broth) are a sure bet. For dessert, try the gooey carrot cake, topped with cream cheese frosting. The attentive staff can suggest a wine pairing for your meal.
