Dress code at Petit Louis

Baltimore native for 8 years - finally going to Petit Loius on Thursday. What to wear? Black dress and boots or stylish jeans and a fancy top? It's a girl's night out...

PS - any food recommendations...

  1. Go as casual or as cocktail as you'd like, and you'll probably see someone else wearing something comparable. For food, I've never gone wrong there with bistro standards -- steak frites, steak au poivre, seared scallops, roast chicken, duck confit ... things like that. I think the steak frites is my favorite with the duck confit a close second, but it's really hard to say. Everything's pretty darned good across the board. (Although, to be fair, last time I was there I had a rabbit special that I found kinda disappointing. It wasn't bad, just ... not as good as whatever else I would've ordered if I hadn't been tempted by the special.)

    1. Their brussels sprouts converted my boyfriend, who hated brussels sprouts as a kid. They're simmered in apple cider vinegar and finished off with a nice saute with I forget what kind of bacon. Fantastic.

      1. I order the mussels in white wine with onions, tomato and basil everytime I go... it never disappoints.... I agree with matt8313 - everyone there outfits in varied degree's of "dressiness". However, my opinion... I'd go with the Black dress and boots...
