For all the upscale, highfalutin French places in town, our favorite is the decidedly homey Au Rendez Vous, tucked into a residential neighborhood in Brookhaven. The cash-only Vietnamese-owned restaurant serves exactly the kind of food you'd find in a real working-class French neighborhood -- traditional recipes cooked with love. You won't go wrong with any of the crepe appetizers, or rich, hearty meat entrees (try the rabbit cooked with red wine). The diminutive prices and feeling of eating in someone's jumbled living room only add to the appeal.
Price: $$$ ($20-$30)
