Alternative to Auberge du Pommier?

I was going to make a reservations at Auberge du Pommier for July 31st. The lady on the phone told me starting from July 29, they will be closing for 5 weeks for renovation, up till Sept 2. I am wonder if anyone would recommend something similar in terms of quality of food and the price range. French cuisine is preferred. Thanks guys!

  1. Splendido, Scaramouche or George

      I wouldn't describe any of those restos as French per se.


    2. How about Bistro 990, La Maquette?

      1. Celestin on Mount Pleaseant

        1. can't go wrong with Celestin or Scaramouche, but also consider Amuse-Bouche

          1. After reading all your replies, I decided to give Celestin a try. There must be some renovations trend going on. They will also be closed started on July 29th.

            Scaramouche seems like a good choice too, but I would love if they have foie gras on their menu. Have anyone tried Bistro & Bakery Thuet? Is it worth a shot?

              I think Bistro and Bakery Thuet is going to be much more casual than what you are looking for (unless you are thinking of Thuet, the original, fancier restaurant). If you meant Thuet, I wouldn't recommend it as a sub for Auberge, unless you're looking for uneven service and the possibility of Bianca yelling at some of the staff.

                Lol, I think you mean Biana...not Bianca. And yes, she is a hoot to watch!

                  Yes! I knew I had her name wrong... she does provide some dinner theatre, but it's sometimes too painful and certainly very distracting.
