Brasserie Cicou

15

I’ve eaten at Brasserie Cicou maybe 6 or 7 times, and (with the exception of goat cheese ice cream one time during Restaurant Week) enjoyed everything I’ve tried.  Food is delicious, and the restaurant is also great for private functions.  A friend of mine celebrated her daughter’s christening in Cicou, and my sister TJ and her husband Rupert hosted an intimate dinner here for family and friends just recently.  They’ve got a play area for kids as well as a kids’ menu, making it very family friendly.

My favorite things to order are the French onion soup, beef onglet, and kouign aman.  I also like the coq au vin, but it’s a large order meant for sharing.

Here’s another look at the scrumptious Kouign Aman served with salted caramel ice cream.  The other desserts I’ve tried have actually been skippable.
