From My Menu

Chef Terence Feury reviews Escargots de Bourgogne at Bistrot la Minette
$$$ | French/Belgian
South Street District
"I think about these snails a lot. Chef Peter Woolsey makes them garlicky and chewy, and serves them up in beautiful little crocks topped with tiny toasts. The chef brings such a beautiful sense of balance to a classic dish."
Chef John Taus reviews Œufs du pêcheur at Bistrot la Minette
$$$ | French/Belgian
South Street District
"This 'fisherman-style' egg from Pete Woolsey and Bistrot La Minette is so satisfying, I put my own rendition of it on my brunch menu. These mussels are steamed in a brandy-tarragon cream sauce out of the shell with thick, crusty baguette and a poached egg = total decadence!"
Chef Joey Campanaro reviews Cassoulet de Toulouse at Bistrot la Minette
$$$ | French/Belgian
South Street District
"French bistro fare and vibe is a lost art, but the guys at Bistrot La Minette do it well. The place feels authentic, especially when you order the Toulouse-style cassoulet, a bowl of lamb and tomato stew with duck confit, lardons, garlic sausage, Tarbais beans, and duck fat breadcrumbs."
Chef Rich Landau reviews Potage parmentier at Bistrot la Minette
$$$ | French/Belgian
South Street District
"Chef Peter Woosley and I have had endless conversations about the perfect vegetable stock. He is damn good at it, and it shows in the simple, beautiful base of his winter root vegetable soup. It has a richness that screams butter and cream, yet there is so very little in there, just great roots and a lot of love."
