39 Rue de Jean’s bar makes it more than just a French restaurant

Looking for a more elegant bar experience with a French twist? Then head to 39 Rue de Jean. Its dark wood and tile interior, red bistro chairs, and intimate sidewalk dining never fails to transport you to a Parisian brasserie. Chef Aaron Lemieux offers a huge menu of French classics like braised rabbit, coq au vin, and steak frites (their homemade fries are among the best in town). If you want something quick to eat before a long night out, then fill up on their delicous burger that is considered one of the best in the city.

They also roll up fat pieces of sushi, perfect for happy hours or late-night stop-ins with a champagne cocktail. Regulars often crave the French 39, a blend of champagne, Chambord, Stoli orange, and orange juice. The lunch menu is filled with salads and sandwiches averaging around $10. Brunch can also be a bit friendlier on the wallet, as long as you don’t go too crazy with their signature Bloody Marys and mimosas. Do not be fooled by the French theme, 39 Rue de Jean supports it own lively bar crowd, and often times service at the bar is faster and way more entertaining then a seat in the dinning room.
