Every culture has its version of the local watering hole, from the Japanese izakaya, to the German bierhaus, to the American... Irish Pub. Evincing the Gallic take on that tradition is Troquet, both a French term for "neighborhood bar", and a new eat-and-drinkery in the former Wolcott's space, which has been warmed up with hues of red & cream, an open kitchen, and plenty of black & white French scenes, hardly as black & white as German scenes.
