La Cigale is a casual french bistro located in El Centro near the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe. This small and intimate restaurant offers up a parisian ambiance with a hint of mexican flair. And the food is outstanding, which is the main reason we frequent this charming venue.
We like to start our evening with some escargot, it’s always a hit. Another top choice of ours is the mussels, always flavorful and fresh, and frites which are nice and crispy. This time we ordered the cream sauce based with frites. Mikhail then ordered the tomato based for his entree. Or maybe vice versa, but we had both.
This night I chose to eat a little lighter and ordered the tuna nicoise salad. Wow, it was delicious. The chef really knows their way around a kitchen as the food is always top notch!
Since La Cigale is over in El Centro it would be a good stop after wednesdays Art Walk, but anytime is great. One of these days we will have to come for lunch and a glass of wine as I am sure it will not disappoint. Bon Appetite!
