Pour la petite histoire

As you walk through a “speakeasy” entrance, you are welcomed by a charming, authentic and lively atmosphere. The wine list will have you travel through France. The cocktail menu will expose you to a palette of french cordials and the attentioned staff will introduce you to all the daily specials. On Tuesday and Thursday you will be entertained by the owner with his gypsy jazz band “Manouche Bag”.

Wife & husband, Alice Troïetto & Mattias Gustafsson both from France, opened Madame Claude Cafe in 2002 and Madame Claude Wine in 2010.

They moved a block away and opened Madame Claude Bis under the White Eagle Theater. It is still a typical Parisian Bistro serving oysters and specialties from all over France, using local produce as much as possible.

Mesures exceptionnelles :

Madame Claude Bis will be partially reopening for pickup only from Thursday to Saturday between the hours of 4:00pm and 7:00pm, 7:30 pm on Saturday. We will be following all the hygiene recommendations from government health authorities.
Thank you for your support.
