The French offers a casual brasserie inspired menu reminiscent – in technique and simplicity – to Chef Vincenzo’s rustic “country and coastal” Italian cuisine at his acclaimed establishments, Osteria Tulia and Bar Tulia. Choose beloved brasserie classics from our dinner menu such as Poulet Rôti Forestière, Tartare de Boeuf, Escargot de Bourgogne, Soupe a l’oignon and Steak Frites. Chef Vincenzo maintains a passion for using the freshest and highest quality ingredients. Dishes such as  lentils du puy, saucisson sec (dry sausage), pastas, pastries and desserts are handmade in house. Seafood is fresh out of the water, and meats and produce come from family-owned, local farms. Other specialties including cheeses, nut breads and dried fruits are imported from fine artisanal producers in the United States and France.

Our team continuously strives to enhance your dining experience. The French offers a semi-private dining space ideal for business functions, rehearsals, bridal showers, holiday parties and wine events. Chef Vincenzo along with our events coordinator will work with you to customize every aspect of your event and ensure you and your guests have an exceptional and memorable event.
