I grew up next to the French boarder in Germany. We would go to France sometimes for dinner, sometimes for lunch. Froglegs, snails – I ate it all. While I don’t feel I have to have the creepy crawlies, you will find them at the La Baguette should this strike your fancy.
This authentic French restaurant -the chef is French!- is located off Gardens Of The Gods Rd at the corner of Chestnut. To me the restaurant almost feels like a little bit of home not sure if it’s the decor or the food. Probably both. When we visited the locale I found the ambiance “tres bon”. I started out with a French onion soup and my Boeuf Bourguinion was melt-in-my-mouth tender and delicious. Unfortunately, after an additional bottle of wine, I could not fit desert into my dinner line up. I took some home for late night snacking!
The food is not inexpensive, but I thought the service was friendly and the food was good. We talked to the chef and his wife.
