It's the Wandering Yank here. Friends recently recommended Allez! highly, and since we love to eat, especially French food, we had to try it. My birthday was the perfect excuse.
A great idea it turned out! It's small and not exactly fancy, in a old-looking building (maybe new and made to look old, I'm not sure) that's part of the charm. We arrived at 4 on a beautiful Sunday afternoon (they're open 11-8 5 days a week). The menu is surprisingly extensive - check it online. We began with a bottle of Madrona Malbec, a local winery. Most of the wines on offer are local, a nice touch. The attentive waitress recommended the rack of lamb, as it's quite popular. Mrs. Yank had that, and it was excellent! Cooked perfectly (medium-rare), 4 mustard-encrusted chops with French white beans. I had the filet mignon with bearnaise sauce. The meat was a bit bland, but the sauce was superb. We followed it up with Caesar salads, with one of the best Caesar dressings (home-made) we've ever had. And dessert - chocolate mousse and profiteroles with almond filling. Overall, an outstanding meal.
For what we had, the prices were very reasonable - the most expensive entree is $29. And the wine list was also very reasonable, both by the bottle and the glass.
2 enthusiastic thumbs up! Next time, maybe boeuf bourguignon, coq au vin, paella, cassoulet, homemade charcuterie...
