With its cozy 1920s French look, Excuse My French is a small slip-down-the-basement bistro that feels like a speakeasy but offers much more. Paris-born chef Johann Giraud created a French tapas-style menu that ranges from a classic cheese platter with warm baguette and fig jam to tasty beef sliders with his “grand-ma” sauce. Vegetarian, fish and seasonal salads options are also part of the menu. The cocktails are a tribute to the first half of the 20th century, rescuing old liquors and aperitifs that pair with the French tapas.
