If your budget doesn’t allow for a jaunt to France to sample the national cuisine (quelle horreur!), never fear—Paris is right here. Thanks to several new eateries (and a few beloved standards) with a distinctly French accent, Madison Valley is swiftly becoming Seattle’s own petit Paris. Bon voyage and bon appetit! 

Belle Epicurean  
3109 E Madison St.
The brioche sticky buns are definitely a raison d’être.

Ines Patisserie
2909-B E Madison St.
The crème de la crème: buttery croissants and fresh fruit tarts.

La Côte Crêperie
2811 E Madison St.
Zut alors! Have you tried the lemon crêpe?

Voilà! A French Bistrot
2805 E Madison St.
The pièce de résistance? The Kobe beef burger, topped with Brie.

2800 E Madison St.
Boeuf bourguignon and pâté de campagne—talk about joie de vivre.

2808 E Madison St.
The grand menu dégustation is de rigueur. (But say au revoir, arm and leg!)
