This Best French Restaurant choice is a relatively new addi- tion to the Hillcrest area res- taurant scene, but Au Revoir is not your typical new kid on the block, as you would swear that you were eating at an actual bistro in the heart of Paris. Upon arriving at Au Revoir, your hostess greets you with a hearty “bonjour,” before you meet a wave of sumptuous smells from Chef Rene Her- beck’s kitchen.


Herbeck discovered his calling for cuisine with his ap- prenticeship at the prestigious L’Hermitage —a 1 Michelin star restaurant, located in the south of France—where he perfected his craft for 4 ½ years, along with other fine eateries throughout Europe. France’s loss is Hillcrest’s gain, as Herbeck tempts your palette with a plethora of dishes that are sure to have you not wanting to bid “Au Revoir” to your dining experience at 420 Robinson Ave.
