Start with a basket of warm Cheese Puffs Gougers, or choose from the earthy goodness of Soupe à l’Oignon, the fresh flavor of a Cognac Niçoise Salad, or the subtle sophistication of the perfect Souffle. Served with hand-cut fries, the Mussels Mariniere is another thoroughly French favorite, as is the mouth-watering Cheese Fondue. Alternatively, keep Mother’s Day simple, yet decadent with the Dozen Oysters Special, washed down with a bottle of Whispering Angel Rosé.
