This "cute" Chappaqua bistro is a "steady" performer for
breakfasts of "baguettes and jam" and "comforting" French
classics served with "amazing frites" till midnight daily; the
staff is "pleasant", while the "lively" interior decked
out with dark wood and "teensy tables" "feels like home"
- if home were "Paris", that is; P.S. "dining on the patio is
a delight" in summer.
A Review of Le Jardin Du Roi French Bistro in Chappaqua New York
Jesse Schmitt, published Nov 17, 2008
"Two things make a restaurant; great food
and superior service.
Forget what anyone else tells you; those two things
will make or break a restaurant. You can have a less than ideal location,
long lines, high prices or other things which can distract, interrupt or
shake the mood and all that gets lost when the service is memorable and the
food is great."
FOR FULL REVIEW
The youthful Jardin
du Roi is a surprisingly authentic French cafe, bar
and restaurant in the heart of Chappaqua. One has to love the sheer optimism
of a place that remains open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a
week from 8 in the morning to midnight in a town where the seriously driven
population folds early to be primed for work and school the next day. Maybe its just that people in
Chappaqua burn more calories than the rest of us, but in its third year, this
little boîte is making a nice go of it. Le Jardin du Roi does French
bistro pretty much by the numbers, but the numbers add up nicely. The decor
is shabby-chic Parisian: a velvet swag here, a
ceramic rooster there. The very minimal art includes a stark black and white
photo of the Eiffel Tower and vintage French posters in sizes too small to
have the desired effect. But the food is both artful and robust, the service
engaging and attentive.
