The first thing to note about Praline is the quality of its bread. It is honestly the best baguette in the area. Close your eyes and you can sort of imagine you're in France. Coffee drinks and pastries are first-rate. The croissants also pass muster for quality and taste. The restaurant has had its ups and downs( no pun intended;the restaurant is actually upstairs above the bakery). Today however everything was up to pars. The hostess was friendly, the wait staff was, if not friendly, totally professional. I had the flank steak, which was prepared rare to order. Also it was cut up into bite-size pieces, which made a rather tough cut easy to handle. It was very good. Dessert was bread pudding, a personal favorite. All in all, the restaurant part of Praline seems to be doing well these days. Keep your fingerz crossed!
