La Bonne Boufe in Encintas?
Any good? Ive been hankering for some good French Bistro food, as Tapenade used to be my birthday dinner of choice (its been a few years though since Ive been lucky to go there).
if you're looking for good French bistro, definitely check out Cavaillon in Santaluz. It's near the 15 and 56 freeways. Small, cozy place with very good food. Reminds me of a less formal Tapenade and less pricey to boot.
The Winesellar and Brasserie in Sorrento Valley also does French, although I liked my dinner at Cavaillon better. My entree at W & B was surprisingly underseasoned. I am going back next week and hoping that it'll be a better experience.
Cafe Chloe in the East Village/ballpark area has good French bistro. Small menu but everything is well executed. Less pricey than Cavaillon and W & B. Also a tad more casual (wine bar, outdoor seating). Best pomme frites I've ever had!
We have been there twice. Alot of attitude. We thought the first time was a lark. Nope!
My wife and I were both born in Switzerland ( the French part ). It did not help. Food was OK.
