Since opening in 2004, Saint Germain has won a following for well-prepared bistro favorites like coq au vin, steak-frites, and savory crêpes in a quaint— if clichéd— setting of vintage posters, a tin ceiling, and mirrored walls. To start, the lightly seasoned herb-and-wine broth for the moules à la marinière makes an ideal preface to heavier entrées. The fillet of salmon, bathed in a lemon-butter sauce, is moist and flaky; the peppercorn- and brandy-seasoned steak au poivre is worth ordering for the perfectly crisped fries alone. Throughout the meal, it’s hard not to ogle the desserts, like the “raspberry-moussed” Brigitte Bardot or crème brûlée, on display in the awe-inspiring pastry case; no choice is a bad one.


Brunch prix fixe includes one hot drink, one cold drink, entrée, and dessert for $18.95.
