This tightly-packed, intimate dining space (which includes a 10-seat communal table) serves inspired farm-to-table dishes like salt roasted branzino and duck confit, but it's chef Corina Weibel's weekend brunch that really makes the biggest impression: house-cured bacon, baked pancakes with meyer lemon custard, and Canelé's signature mascarpone-daubed French toast wedges will have you licking your plate (and those of your neighbors) clean.

Canele is one of my favorite neighborhood restaurants. The atmostphere is something out of a Nancy Meyers film-- cozy and intimate with an open air kitchen. While it does stay lively, it's easy to walk-in without a reservation most nights. They always have nightly seasonal specials, but they are quite famous for their Beef Bourguignon. While I am a very big fan of this restaurant, we have noticed that it tends to be inconsistent in terms of the food. I have had to send dishes back for being too salty, too fishy, or overcooked. We eat here frequently, and while that doesn't happen every time, it's worth noting. They are, however, always quick to make things right. They have an excellent wine list and we love to start every meal with their warm olives, burrata or their fabulous cheese board. Saving the best for last, make sure to grab a Canele that is offered on your way out. It will blow your mind! 


The food here is so fresh and tasty—especially brunch, which a nice mix of heavy indulgences and lighter, healthier fare. My biggest gripe with brunch is how they seat folks, letting a giant line build up outside and then only seating 10 or so tables every 20 minutes. I understand if they can't serve everyone right away, but I'd rather sit inside at a table with coffee than twiddle my thumbs outside in full view of a half-empty restaurant I'm not allowed into! Luckily, the food makes up for it, and dinner is amazing as well. If you like dessert, the cheesecake here is incredible.
