Lunch is offered daily at Café des Beaux Arts from 11:00am to 3:00pm. Cool off with a chicken Waldorf salad, shrimp Louie salad, ahi tartar, or salad nicoise. Or warm up with French onion soup gratinee, chicken ravioli, or escargots bourguignonne. Sandwiches like the brie burger, croquet monsieur, or chicken breast sandwich with Dijon and cornichons are served with a side of fruit, quinoa, or French fries. Indulge in a little bit of breakfast with your lunch in the form of crepe and egg dishes, or enjoy a hearty linguini dish, such as the linguini diablo with shrimp. Specialty dishes include classics like coq au vin, spinach quiche Lorraine, moules-frites, grilled beef medallions, and cold poached salmon.
Dine on Café des Beaux Arts’ dinner menu from 5:00pm to 9:00pm daily, with extended hours on Saturday nights.
