Bistro du Lac

Bistro du Lac’s interior features bright red walls with white accents, sparkly chandeliers, a separate bar and a bakery case; outside, a pair of patios on the man-made Lake Marguerite are set with white-linen-covered tables. The menu is classically French with some culinary tweaks. Cream of mushroom soup is served with brie-filled profiteroles; Caesar salad is dressed with roasted tomatoes. Mostly, though, Bistro du Lac offers Gallic favorites like beef bourguignon, bouillabaisse, and escargot. A pastry menu offers fresh-baked breads, croissants, macarons, and cakes. Berraud Dufour's much-loved crepes are also offered here. Sweet classics like crepe au citron (lemon and sugar with strawberry jam) and savory crepes like la reined, a mélange of grilled mushrooms, pulled chicken, Gruyere and béchamel sauce.
