Authentic is not synonymous with serious. Check out the drawings of Tintin at this charming minichain that draws its name from another Continental cartoon favorite, the Little Bee. Locals keep coming back for fresh mussels and the three-course prix fixe, offered weekdays from 5 to 6:30pm. Try the vol-au-vent, a chicken stew covered with a puff-pastry lid, or the croque-monsieur, made with ham and Gruyère. At brunch, golden waffles topped with strawberries are authentic, serious fun.
