Mon Ami Gabi is a classic French bistro that celebrates the rich heritage and ‘joie de vivre’ of France by serving up traditional dishes in a warm and inviting setting. Upon entering, guests are welcomed by the aroma of freshly baked bread and a quaint atmosphere. “Mon Ami” means “my friend” in French while “Gabi” is for renowned chef and owner Gabino Sotelino. The passion for French food and wine is alive and well at Mon Ami Gabi and the ever-evolving menu is full of traditional favorites. Classics like savory Onion Soup Au Gratin, topped with bubbling baked gruyere cheese, or Escargots de Bourgogne with garlic-herb butter are perfect starters. For entrees, diners can choose from menu items such as signature Steak Frites – featuring the finest Midwest grain-fed beef and hand-cut frites made fresh daily, or one of the restaurant’s Plats du Jour – which utilize the best of what’s in season. To sweetly end the meal, the dessert menu features classic favorites like creamy Crème Brulee, or the Warm Chocolate Cake. On weekends, join Mon Ami Gabi for a delectable brunch that serves breakfast specialties as well as classic crêpes and quiches.

To complement the cuisine, an extensive selection of over 80 boutique French wine varietals — handpicked by renowned chef and owner Gabino Sotelino himself — are served by the glass or bottle from the restaurant’s signature rolling wine cart.

Mon Ami Gabi is ‘Old World’ beautiful, ‘New World’ friendly and openly easy to love. The bistro offers an intimate, wood-trimmed, softly lit space that provides the perfect backdrop for a classic ambiance. As guests walk through the doors, they will notice a large turn-of-the-century Parisian bar – just the spot for grabbing a martini or glass of wine while taking in the scene. The restaurant features wooden tables with crisp white tablecloths and signature butcher paper and during the summer, the outdoor cafe is a beautiful place for dining al fresco as the charming patio provides a relaxing respite.
