Café Les Baux - Millbrook, New York

Rural Intelligence FoodThis cozy French bistro, with a real French owner/chef, Herve Bochard, in the kitchen, is la vrai chose. Tucked away on a Millbrook side street, it has been a popular stand-by for nearly 25 years (lucky Millbrook), its name a reference to Les Baux-de-Provence. As implied, the menu seldom strays from authentic Southeastern France regional classics such as moules frites ($19), steak frites ($25), duck breast with a port-wine reduction ($24), all perfectly prepared and presented. There is nothing chi-chi about Café Les Baux, either in the decor or on the menu. It’s the consistent quality that turns first-time diners into regulars and keeps them coming back year-after-year.  Our advice: reserve ahead, especially for dinner on weekends. —Marilyn Bethany
