On a weekend in late October, we decided to experience the south of France at Alouette Bistro. This charming restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere and a cozy bar. The menu is extensive and we chose to sample the brunch platter known as “Le Grand Plat.”

This dish is chock full of authentic French fare, including croissants, brioche, baguettes, seasonal jam, honey, butter, crème fraiche, smoked salmon, seared tuna, poached eggs, fresh fruits, and nuts.

We sampled a few other choices from their all-day menu that were recommended by Executive Chef Tran, including the Onion Tarte with leeks, raclette, fennel, and arugula salad and the Rainbow Trout Almondine served with green beans, baby peppers, radish, almonds, capers, brown butter sauce
