After a round of small renovations, the well-received French restaurant Bistro Le Jardin has turned into a more relaxed eatery and lowered its prices. The European-style deli includes selections like a Continental Breakfast (NT$50-290), Quiche Lorraine, handmade afternoon tea snacks, and authentic French delicacies for lunch and dinner. In addition, they also have ready-made food and wine for take-out. The bistro's changes come as a real treat, and the owner hasn't compromised quality in the process. Andre Joulian, the man in charge, has kept his high standards in selecting the best French ingredients and spices and the whole team of chefs here is devoted to creating homemade flavors for a wide range of Taipeiers. --By Josie Wu, translated by Ann Lee
A. Quiche Lorraine (NT$150), which originated in northern France, is made with eggs, fresh cream, mushrooms or onions, and bacon. The crispy, smooth egg dish is great for brunch.
B. Le Jardin's tender Duck Leg Confit (NT$420) is marinated in sea salt overnight and then slowly braised. Andre also recommends their Tasting Set Menu (NT$900+). Some of the delicious dishes in this meal set include Escargot, Duck Leg Confit, and Grilled Lamb Chops.
