Best French food in Arl/Alex/FC
La Bergerie for high end. Pehaps La Refuge for a smaller, less upscale. La Gaulois is not worth visitng. Bistrot Lafayette fo rmore casual still--obviosuly bistro food. In Arlingon/Falls Chuch, you might consider La Cote D'Or; they have both a bistro and a more upsclae side. I have never bee nto Chez Andee so I can't compare any of these to that.
Chez Andrée is just plain good. Maybe best described as French-American comfort food. It will never be in the same league as Lepic or Montmartre and doesn't have to be. You can have a drink at the bar or liver and onions. Daily specials. Homey French desserts. A hidden gem with great prices.
