Dining Guide

La Frite Belgian Bistro

For more than a decade, little La Frite and the Donnelly family have garnered a following for their Belgian and French bistro classics, from the expected mussels to crepes, hanger steak, and vol-au-vent. The dimly lit, mural-decorated dining rooms, a few sidewalk tables, cheerful service—it all adds up to charm and romance. Do start with those moules: seven varieties take on different flavor profiles, from the classic white wine, cream, shallots, and garlic to Basque-style, with bright bits of chorizo and smoked paprika. And the fries are pretty spectacular too. Keeping to the classics, the magret de canard, a medium-rare duck breast with a berry demi-glace, was tender and rich, the sauce a nice glaze of tart and sweet.
