French Bistro in Monmouth County?

Is anybody aware of a french bistro restaurant restaurant in monmouth. The word bistro is so misused today, it's impossible to tell french from whatever.

  1. The most "French" of any place worth eating at in Monmouth county is Le Fandy. I just had lunch there again last week and it is as good as ever. Besides, where else can you get Oeufs a la Neige for dessert? I love the halibut there.

    609 River Rd, Fair Haven, NJ 07704

    1. re: seal

      Thanks for the input. I checked the menu online. It's probably very good but the menu is not french except for a few appetizers.

    2. I've not eaten here, but take a look at Bienvenue in Red Bank.

      1. It is not in Monmouth county but really close. It is called Sophies' Bistro in Hamilton near Somerset.

          you're right Spaetzle. That's as close as you'll get to true French bistro food from Monmouth County - crummy neighborhood, great food.

        2. Avenue is long branch is essentially french bistro fare served in a trying to hard, "hip" environment.
