French on a Tuesday?

CarrieWas218 | | Sep 16, 2010 01:23 PM

I need to take four people out for classic French next Tuesday. I don't want the Fleur de Lys price tag for folks who aren't that knowledgeable or appreciative.

Clementine is my gut reaction choice and want to make sure I'm not missing something obvious.

I took one of these four to Hyde Street Bistro back in July; he was thrilled (his first escargot) but I was unimpressed.

I have not been to Fringale, Gitane, Le Charm or L'Ardoise. Thoughts?
