Lilly’s French Cafe and Bar is a neighborhood gem, says westsidegal. Everything she sampled was a delight.

The daily fish special was, one day, a very generous portion of pesto-encrusted white fish with white wine sauce. It was “terrific all the way around,” says westsidegal: fresh fish, flavorful preparation, crispy on the outside and moist inside. The details are all proper, right down to the hot plate keeping the fish warm all meal long.

Steak frites is excellent, particularly the fries. They are, says westsidegal, far superior to normal fries, with crisp, perfect outsides and exceptionally dry, flaky insides. Lemon tart may not be tangy enough for some, but the crust is terrific.
