Try something different at L’Eiffel Bistrot

Admittedly, there aren’t many French restaurants in the suburbs.

“It’s a challenge French cuisine faces,” said Luis Cubillos, general manager of L’Eiffel Bistrot and Creperie in South Barrington. “Sometimes it’s not very approachable. People are used to traditional meals, so there is the educational factor, not only with food and wine. People think French wine is very expensive and not approachable, but we have an eclectic wine menu with French wines and wines from other parts, like California.”

It’s because of this unfamiliarity with French food that the menu at L’Eiffel is filled with staple dishes. “We try to keep it as familiar as possible and then have specials for dinner. Our chef is from Mexico and incorporates flavors into it. We had a poblano rice recently. That’s where our chef has more liberties.”

And with events like jazz and tango nights starting up in June out on the patio, the music inspires other specials, Cubillos said. Jazz night might influence Cajun- and Louisiana-themed dishes; tango night brings out the Argentinian flavors.
