We stopped in for lunch based on a recommendation of a local shop owner. I have found that locals are the best to ask about where to eat and what to do no matter where you go. There is indoor and outdoor seating. Our server was attentive and very friendly. She even brought reading glasses for me to use because... More

Had the halibut and was not impressed. It was so dry that you could not even taste the sauce . The service and atmosphere was good, but I would not recommend based on the food for the price.

Went for their Valentine's dinner and had the Mussels, Mushroom Duxelles, Roasted Chicken Provençal, and Halibut from their Valentine's Day menu - appetizers were great but both mains were a little over-seasoned and a little over-done. We had the pavlova for dessert, which was delicious, despite being overly sticky in texture.

I recently went to New Orleans and fell head over heels for the food and culture. Petite Chou captures NOLO with Indiana practicality. The mussels are amazing and if you want real Southern style grits, this is the place. Very intimate and stylish. Parking is your only road block. Highly recommend.

We arrived around 6:30 on a Thursday evening. It was cold and rainy out, and a bit cold inside. We were seated immediately. The tables were a bit close and certainly not an intimate dinner for two one would hope for in a cafe with steep prices. We ordered chicken crepes and were sorely disappointed. The item arriving was certainly... More

We went and checked this place out, and it was fabulous, tastefully decorated with great service and an imaginative menu. We started with the duck fat fries and the foie gras, both of which were excellent. The foie gras was paired with fig jam, a nice touch. My wife had a croc madame, which was generous and well-prepared. I had... More

I came for lunch with a group of girlfriends. We had great service and the food was very good. We had a variety of dishes from brunch to burgers with comments such as "this is the best burger I've ever had" or the "best omelet". I had a salad that was fresh and tasty.

We will venture out any night we hear Petite Chou is serving Martha's fried chicken. The brined crispiness is what we come for! Perfect mix of herbs in the batter and served piping hot. You get a nice portion of both white and dark meat. Only reason we didn't rate it a 5 is because the sides that accompany the... More

Just Brioche Bread with batter on it. No attempt to let the batter soak in. Good French toast should have a custard texture. Take a... More

Description
With its tightly packed tables and classic bistro fare, Petite Chou Bistro and Champagne Bar is Patachou's American reinvention of the iconic French neighborhood restaurant. Handcrafted St. Germain cocktails and champagne cocktails share the menu with bistro classics such as all-natural rotisserie chicken, pommes frites (authentically prepared in duck fat) and pan-seared Indiana steak. A carefully collected champagne, wine and craft beer list that focuses on small producers accentuates your menu choices. Made to order crêpes, tartines and omelettes are beloved customer favorites, available open through close. An elegant yet energetic environment envelops guests relaxing on the banquette inside the restaurant, while a heated, dog-friendly outdoor seating area beckons in season.
