As refreshingly untrendy as it gets, there’s no need to share small plates or take a picture of your food at this Southern French restaurant tucked away at the back of a gallery. Here, the homestyle cuisine is just plain good and features old school Provençal dishes like lamb a la ficelle, grilled sardines, and a wonderful, warming Rum Baba without any extra frills. This is all the doing of young, self-taught chef, Alex Jackson, a protegĂ© of Stevie Parle’s (of Craft and Dock Kitchen Fame). Also refreshing are the prices, which are manageable for its young crowd, and the wine list, which features Viognier on tap along with a good selection of other cheap and cheerful picks.
