Price Scale

Tiny, quaint Café Rabelais serves some of the best casual French food in town, but it doesn’t take reservations and open tables can be hard to come by on busy nights. There’s no printed menu—offerings change twice daily, and you keep track of what’s for lunch or dinner by reading the chalkboard. Any given day may bring moules Rabelais (stewed mussels), quiche du jour, a merguez sausage sandwich, salad Niçoise, and a fish special. It all depends on the whims of the chef. Rabelais only serves French wines, but there over 550 at a wide range of prices.
