Boeuf Bourguignon and Pinot Noir at Le Patio
Le Patio is run by Veronique Leroux and Jean Doherty, who formerly ran
Sugar 'n' Spice Cafe on Oakland Park Boulevard. As small and cozy as
that comfort-food-driven restaurant was, Le Patio is even cozier. It's
barely eight feet wide and is essentially a long hallway filled with
wine racks, antique tables, and lots of artsy photos of naked people.
The interior is cute, but the back patio where I ate, from which the
place takes its name, is romantic and gorgeous all at once.
In addition to the boeuf, which came with egg noodles, I tried a
roasted goat cheese salad. The goat cheese was coated with herbs de
province and baked on top of toast points and sat on top of a mixed-greens salad with blanched green beans, walnuts, peppers, and a very
light Champagne vinaigrette. I thought it was a great salad to drink
wine with as well, one of Le Patio's other highlights. The wine
selection is not large, but an inexpensive glass of pinot along with
peasant-style French food and that stellar view goes a long way.
