La Poubelle, Franklin Village's Neighborhood French Bistro

La Poubelle has remained a family restaurant for forty-five years, but it’s only been the last three years or so that Johnny Zone has helmed the kitchen.
The results of his influence on the menu at La Poubelle are wonderfully consistent. Solid renditions of traditional French Bistro classics are a huge benefit to the neighborhood crowd from Franklin Village – and things are always bustling at the restaurant – at the bar and at the tables!
Start off with Escargots a la Bourguignonne and then move on to a Mesclun Salad. Try the French Onion Soup for good measure. It is all really good.
And as fall arrives, you certainly won’t want to miss main entrees like the Boeuf Bourguignon and the Coq au Vin, both favorites here for good reason. There are some “nouveau” offerings as well to keep everyone interested, and you’ll find them under the “Neighborhood Favorites” portion of the menu, including Crispy Brussels Sprouts Leaves and Truffle Sliders.
Franklin Village has a lot to be proud of in La Poubelle. The vibe is casual and local, and the restaurant deserves its reputation as a well-revered staple on the block.
