This friendly, colorful Albany hangout serves up classic examples of French bistro fare, some of them on the faux side, others perfectly soulful and satisfying. The daube (braised beef) and coq au vin (chicken in red wine) are rich, tender and tasty; brie- and garlic-stuffed gougère puffs make a delectable appetizer. (The onion soup and bouillabaisse are best avoided.) Get the towering strawberry shortcake with strawberry ice cream for dessert. Generous, affordable portions.
