Rue Cler is a Parisian-style restaurant, bakery and cafe that uses fresh Southeastern ingredients.

French eatery Rue Cler is the perfect pick-me-up for a slow-starting Sunday. It's bright and cheerful, the beignets are made fresh to order and come out almost as quickly as your cup of coffee. The menu is varied – so whether you want steak frites to satisfy a carnivorous craving or something on the lighter side, Rue Cler has you covered. From time to time, I have dreams about the chicken paillard – a seared chicken breast nestled in a fresh green salad and then topped with gooey brie cheese and crispy fried onions – and though it sounds simple, don't try it at home. It simply won't compare.
