Best french bistro (Bistro Campagne? Bistrot Margot?Chez Simo Bistro?)

titleTK | Apr 14, 2014 11:09 AM

My parents are visiting in a couple of weeks and I know they love a good French bistro but having trouble getting an accurate read of what's out there. About 10 years ago we ate at Bistrot Margot and they loved that but from the reviews it seems the quality has declined somewhat. But that's the idea of what I'm looking for . . . something nice but not too pricy or too dressy but really excellent, comforting food (In other words a classic French bistro . . .).

I had originally settled on Bistro Campagne but again it seem like maybe it's not as good since the owner passed away. I've heard great things about Chez Simo Bistro and kind of leaning towards that now. I live in Lakeview so would prefer to stay on the North side but would travel for something that perfectly fits the bill.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Bistro Campagne,
Chez Simo Bistro
