Hot Dining: New French Standard

No matter the prevailing trends, fine French food never goes out of fashion; it’s always notable when a new purveyor of la cuisine pops up. The latest in this city is Le Rossignol, a petit bistro located at the western edge of residential Leslieville. The restaurant has all the touchstones of Parisian intimacy—white linens, warm yet discreet lighting—and such classic fare as cassoulet ($19) and moules et frites ($17) to match. Chef Jeremie Seguinot does, however, add a few twists, courtesy of the archetypically Canadian ingredients in dishes like bison tenderloin ($26), braised wild boar chop ($27) and striped bass ($20).
