Very Parisian, very joyful, very civilized, Laloux is a haven for those seeking a quick fix of affordable French-style luxury, whether on the leafy-floral terrace or in the handsome, spacious interior. Highlights are a shimmering scallop mousse ($4.75 with the table d'hote); dreamy potato crepe with smoked salmon and caviar ($28.50); and zesty sea bass with tomato and basil ($22.50 including soup and dessert).
Excellent service and great, reasonably priced wines.
