From the black and white umbrellas that hang from the ceiling to the garçons' striped shirts, there's an oo-la-la to Rigolo.If our French were better, we'd be able to tell you about Rigolo's special je ne sais quoi in the mother tongue. But we'll have to resort to English to relay this bistro's unique blend of whimsical cirque with mouthwatering menu. From the black and white umbrellas that hang from the ceiling to the garçons' striped shirts, there's an oo-la-la to Rigolo that translates into an extensive selection of food, from breakfast and lunch favorites like eggs benedict, pain perdu, and their signature "pizza rectangulaire", to their new dinner menu.
Lucky for you, this deal is good for Rigolo's dinner, which features such specials as the steak frites classique (hanger steak with balsamic roasted onions, shallot butter, watercress salad and Pomme Frites) and the stone oven-roasted Maine lobster with creamy polenta, haricots verts and lobster beurre blanc. If you're pinching your francs, they've also got a prix fixe dinner menu for $24.99, and don't forget the wine and beer selection that keep the fete flowing.
With a menu like this, a Scout might be tempted to go to town on their dinner, American-style. But we recommend eating slowly and relishing each bite, like the French do. It's simply a la mode.
