6. Carpe Diem by Cafe de France

When Café de France morphed into Carpe Diem by Café de France, it thankfully retained the intimate charm that had initially drawn people to its Delray Beach address. While the menu is no longer strictly French, it still offers a wide selection of exquisitely prepared classics like Coquille Saint Jacque ($14.99), scallopsin white wine sauce with mushrooms served gratinee; escargot ($9.99); and bouillabaisse ($27.99).

5. Six Tables

You've heard the saying "Good things come in small packages." You've also heard the best food in the world is French. If both ideas are true, you need to make sure you visit this place. As the name suggests, the tiny Boca Raton restaurant is filled with just six tables, and it offers just one seating per night. The multi-course menu features traditional Gallic fare like duck l'orange, chateaubriand, or poached pear with stilton served on elegant china with silver cutlery, linen napkins, and wine in crystal glasses. We dare you to find a place more elegant -- i.e. French -- than that.
