The Left Bank's Parisian charm isn't present at this faux French bistro. Instead, the cobblestone floor, a street scene mural, and one wrought-iron lamppost stuck amid the small round tables, evoke a well-conceived eatery at a pseudo-Continental theme park. Cute yet corny, Rue des Paris just needs an Edith Piaf soundtrack to complete its tourist-friendly setting. The menu, like the surroundings, caters to stateside diners hankering for safe multicultural cuisine. Stuffed inside light, buckwheat crêpes are ingredients like spicy sausage with a garlicky white bean paste, a gooey mix of goat cheese and leeks, or a scoop of vanilla invigorated by Nutella and walnuts. Champagne brunches and low-priced lunches only get as risqué as French toast crêpes and a cup of five-onion soup sans cheese. Frites are fancified with four different gourmet dips, although ketchup is on hand for patriotic traditionalists.Extra
