In tomorrow’s AJC, you’ll find my review of Babette’s Cafe, which opened nearly 21 years ago. I gave the restaurant a grade of 3 stars.
Chef-owner Marla Adams cooks with confidence and honesty, comfortably infusing French, Italian and Spanish flavors into the menu.
I particularly enjoyed the roast Ashley Farms chicken ($18) in Adams’s luxuriously silky white wine-and-butter sauce spiked with a licoricey tarragon reduction. Steamy browned chicken and fresh artichokes settle in the sauce with a glorious mountain of creme fraiche slowly unfolding around them.
