A little French culture with a lot of French taste is what you’ll get at Cafe Chloe in the East Village, a charming neighborhood bistro where you can enjoy a nice cappuccino for breakfast, a quick lunch, and linger on with wine and beautiful food for dinner.
Savor a rustic approach to culturally rich, regional ingredients. The menu changes seasonally and daily featuring sustainable seafood and all-natural meats and chicken. The produce comes from local farms including Crows Pass, Sage Mountain, and Suzie’s Farms.
The lunch crowd comes in for smoked trout salad with apple vinaigrette and the Jidori chicken crepe with mushrooms, spinach, and truffle oil. Dinner is all about the Moules Belgique, local mussels cooked in Belgian ale and cream, and the lamb cassoulet with house Merguez sausage, braised lamb, pork belly confit.
