Frank & Betsie Have a Winner

Speaking frankly, it's a pleasure to dine at Frank and Betsie's.

... a pretty, comfortable place, with friendly service, moderate prices...

Baked Brie, fresh from the oven and melting into garlic butter sauce, was exceptionally rich and quite wonderful.

There are some very attractive and rewarding selections, not the least of which is the House Pate. Chicken liver has been whipped up until it is almost as light as a mousse, with a fresh, not too salted taste.

Entrees carry out the French bistro theme with selections that emphasize fresh herbs and a fairly steady hand at seasoning.

I ordered the steak au poivre that features the tastiest peppercorn sauce I have had this side of the Atlantic, a delicate combination of red wine, brandy, and crushed blue peppercorns.

One was hardly enough...
