Truly a family affair (it's named after the daughter of owner Joe Doppes), Bistrot Margot brings a touch of French elegance to Old Town. The interior recreates the look and feel of an early 20th-century Parisian hotel, a bustling scene filed with plush seats, mirrors, linens and a playful series of photos of Margot Doppes, age four.

Despite the Old Town locale and exquisite presentation, diners can still indulge at Bistrot Margot and won't drain their checking account; nearly all meals come in at under $20. The menu covers quite a bit of ground, ranging from steak frites to tilapia and the pork tenderloin, the most popular dish. Standout dishes include escargot soaked in garlic and butter, a rare-grilled salmon and Taylor Street Pizza, a spin on the classic dish that utilizes brioche dough. If you're seeking something that would make Atkins shudder, go for the daily risotto special. This is classic French cooking, and Doppes has mastered an impressive array of culinary flavors.

A fully-stocked bar and a range of wines from France and California are available to compliment your meal. Since Bistrot Margot fills up quickly on weekends and during dinner on weekdays, it's recommended that patrons make reservations ahead of time.
