Coquette Offers Approachable French Cuisine

Located front and center at North Hills in Raleigh, French restaurant Coquette Brasserie is refreshingly approachable and well worth checking out.
Chef de Cuisine Beth LittleJohn, who grew up on a farm in Caswell County, oversees the kitchen. She received her culinary training at New York’s esteemed Culinary Institute of America. Among the dishes she finesses include traditional French offerings like beef bourguignon, pan-roasted duck breast and a succulent coq au vin, a classic chicken entrée layered with bacon lardons, mushrooms and pearl onions.


Hors d’oeuvres like pan-seared foie gras, steak tartare and escargot also vie for attention, although snails are not my first choice for an appetizer. Another starter, the petite tarte flambé, involves thin, flat bread created from house-made dough. The popular Alsatian is topped with caramelized onions, bacon lardons, ham and fromage blanc. 



When it comes to dessert, look no further than the butterscotch-infused crème brûlée.

Sunday brunch is a big draw, featuring $2 mimosas and a variety of eggs Benedict dishes, quiches, crepes and more. 

Service at Coquette is friendly and efficient. When you go, be sure to check out the restaurant's showpiece bar. It’s handcrafted from French-imported zinc.
