Frog's legs and Vin du Pays, frites and aioli, escargot and pot de crème--this duskily lit Provencal cavern of a restaurant serves everything you love from the garlic-and-passion tradition of French life, and does it under-budget, cheerfully, and well. Escargot are plump as grapes and bathed in such a garlic cream sauce that you know this is what they serve James Beard in heaven. Frog's legs are served golden and crisp, with plenty of garlic butter to dredge your good bread through, and so what if the entrees are hit and miss? It's more passionate to share thousands of appetizers with your loved ones, no? Anyhoo, since the wine list here features plenty of country bottles, you can schedule date night without endangering the Christmas trip to Paris.
