From Our Guests...
Le Petite Paris is a true culinary experience. The food is phenomenal, the atmosphere is quite comfortable and the staff make you fell welcomed, almost like you're at home. I'm surprised it took us 6 years to find you, but I promise we'll be back! We'll bring you chocolate truffles in the fall ;)
Romantics retreat to this “true find” in Breckenridge, where “amazing” French cuisine is proffered in a small dining room bedecked with pink tablecloths, flowers and dark woods; just as “charming” as the environment are the “entertaining” staffers, and though prices are up there, the summertime three-course brunch prix fixe is a bargain.
As its name suggests, Le Petite Paris truly makes you feel as though you're dining at a quaint Parisian bistrot that pays homage in every way possible to France, its culture, and its history. The ambiance and the people are inviting while still upholding a sense of formality.
You are greeted at the door by a gentleman who takes your coats and guides you and your date to your crisp linen-covered table- this table will become an altar of worship for the next two hours as plate after plate of gastronomic perfection is set before you.
A knowledgable waitress tends to you promptly, explaining in detail the fine drink selections offered. She may linger encouragingly on the French Martini- I urge you to take the bait and order it. With raspberry vodka, Chambord, and pineapple juice, it makes for a lovely drink (though perhaps a bit strong if you're a pansy like me).
The menu is a history book/list of offerings hybrid, featuring famous French faces and places alongside menu items as if to suggest, "Molten chocolate cake so good, even Marie Antoinette would eat it." The menu also dons a small note requesting that cellphones not be used while dining at the restaurant. IT'S ABOUT DAMN TIME. Call me old-fashioned, but I find it extremely rude and obnoxious when people have their cellphones out at the dinner table. I was raised to enjoy the food and company you keep during a meal; to aimlessly scroll through Facebook while dining with others is inexcusable... but I digress.
I tend to judge restaurants based in part on the bread that they serve. Le Petite Paris serves EXQUISITE French bread: crusty and flaky exterior, warm and soft inside, paired with lightly seasoned sweet butter. You had me at "bonjour."
After yet another lengthy deliberation process, I chose to start with the goat cheese salad. The salad was served with two crostini slathered in green and black olive tapenades and another with goat cheese; I all but licked the plate clean, and the same can be said for my boyfriend's French onion soup bowl.
For my main course, I selected the pan-seared trout, which included roasted tomatoes, almond beurre blanc, lemon garlic aioli, and a bed of lemon risotto. The fish was cooked perfectly through and the risotto was at once rich and refreshing. 2 for 2 in the Clean Plate Club.
My meal concluded with the molten chocolate cake. Garnished with sweet berries and side of creme Anglaise to drizzle over it, this cake makes even the poorest of peasants feel like a queen. Suffice it to say, this is the last thing I want to taste before I die. If I was from Paris, I would say "ooh-la-la."
The restaurant is run by two sisters from Paris, one of whom is a pastry chef by training and makes all the desserts on the menu. The other sister works the floor, making polite conversation with patrons. These women are so sweet and talented, and have managed to build one of the best eateries I have EVER been to.
