I cannot help but think of Vogue’s editor Anna Wintour every time I walk in front of Claudette. The place has a bit of an exclusive veneer though it is quite accessible with a nice compact menu that mixes Provence flavors with North African spices. The place is bright and feels like a seaside bistro.
