This beguiling bistro, outfitted with dark-wood paneling and artifacts from Brittany, stands out among the area’s clutch of Indian restaurants. The menu lists French staples, including buttery escargots and trout with a lemon-caper sauce, along with delectable specials like creamy scallops with mushrooms and shrimp. The signature dessert is a traditional chocolate soufflé worth every second of the 40-minute wait: It’s golden on the outside, fluffy on the inside and infused with Grand Marnier.
