They offer classic bistro cuisine for brunch, lunch, and dinner, including steak frites, coq au vin, and crepes. Food & Wine praised their beignets, which they sell by the dozen and the half dozen.
Rue Cler also offers an extensive wine list sourced from wine-makers that owners John and Nathan Vandergrift know personally. They also have a full bar.
