* Albert & Simon restaurant

We received an excellent review of Albert & Simon restaurant from our favorite restaurant critic Morris Bishop. We agree that Albert & Simon’s is a fantastic restaurant for a classy meal. They offer international cuisine with a creative French touch. You absolutely have to leave room for the raspberry or chocolate soufflé. Just remember to order it early, because it takes 30 minutes to prepare. Click here to read more...
