Pates Et Traditions feels like the living room of someone who has a pen pal in France. The entire space is covered in postcards and pictures from the South of France, as well as plant-lined bookshelves and hand-stitched pillows. The menu stays on theme with dishes like baked eggs with foie gras during the day, and steak au poivre at dinner. We like it here most during weekend brunch, when the long list of savory crepes and inexpensive glasses of French wine make us wish we had a pen pal, too.
