Need a France fix? Surprisingly, downtown Concord can hook you up. Just steps from the Brenden theaters, La Sen Bistro looks and feels like a romantic, low-lit European restaurant, and certain dishes will beam you across the ocean faster than Air France. Employing competent French technique witnessed over the years at the now-closed La Rose Bistro in Berkeley, the kitchen pumps out a subtle, balanced Roquefort and green apple salad; tender roasted lamb chops in a port sauce served with light-as-a-cloud potato puffs; and a good-quality rib eye with fries so crisp, light, and garlicky, you’ll want a second order. A Caesar salad also gets high marks, and a house-made cobbler of pears and blackberries, a special on the dessert menu, is luscious if mushy. The uncomplicated wine list is a good fit with the food, the service is friendly and efficient, and prices are reasonable. Lunch and dinner daily.
