I had brunch at one of my "go to" spots in the neighborhood. Le Barricou is a country style bistro
serving southern traditional dishes of the french countryside.
Seek your way past the front room where the music can be too loud
(I've been told it's an "owner mandated" decibel). Once you reach the backroom, it's like entering
a cozy cabin with wood burning stove, large skylight and vintage piano. I recommend the Coq au Vin,
the french toast and the cheese plates. I go here often both in large parties and spontaneous dates. The interior design is impeccable; the wall treatments, lighting, and foliage all add to the surreality of being in another time and place.
