Best French KCMO

Will Be in KCMO this weekend, which of these should I not miss? We are going to first Friday - so we will proably do Le Fou Frog - where else should we go?

Aixois, Tatsu, cafe de amis, cafe provence, cassis

  1. Cafe Provence is good. So is Tatsu. Cassis is gone - the chef owned provence also but I think his brother runs it now. Never been to amis....Aixois is geared toward older neighbor hood ladies IMO....Not classical haute.

      I would recommend Cafe de Amis. It's cute and intimate. I love the mussels and the duck on their menu. I find their wine list to be very simple, but with great selections.

        Agree on Cafe de Amis. Very good place-can't wait to go back. That being said, I haven't been to any of the other french places in town, so I can't compare it to anything here.

          If Cafe de Amis is the one in Parkville, MO it is good. I would go for lunch to keep your budget in check.
          Wine list was nice and affordable.

            I took my wife out to Cafe des Amis last weekend and was very underwhelmed, even a bit disappointed. We trained at a french culinary school, and are always looking for nice, quaint little french places. Maybe it was an off night, but it was not anything special.
            For the best french food, you can't beat the "uniqueness" of Le Fou Frog. Hands down, the best in the city, even if Mano does still smoke in the kitchen. What can I say, he's very french!
