A good French bistro never gets old—even as it ages. This charming standby still packs in customers every night, sending them off happier and fatter than when they arrived. The menu may include irresistibles such as navarin d’agneau printanier (lamb stew) and the seasonal oven-roasted pork tenderloin with apple-Calvados sauce. Kiki’s proves that getting older doesn’t mean losing your touch.
