chez francois in Vermillion ohio I tink the best place in the midwest . I have eaten there since 1972 and the last and best was the beef wellington with a wild mushroom bisque. Nothing like it ever. BTW back in the 70's it was called , excuse spelling, Le barge du port. any foodie in thia area must go here. Its a Meca

I had dinner there last week. Absolute throwback. The maître d-Matt Mars, is absolutely the best front of the house guy I know.
One of the best restaurants in Ohio by far. I'd love to hit their Beer or Truffle dinners or their New Years party. Haven't been there in a couple years and would love to go back
Their wine dinners are also wonderful (and a pretty good deal). They should have a Beaujolais dinner coming up. We did that a few years back and it was amazing - one of the best, if not the best, dinner ever.
oh man.. stop it! an hour and a half drive?! is there anywhere decent to stay overnight in vermillion?
These lakeside cottages in Vermillion were pretty decent as I recall.
It's an easy drive easily done without staying overnight one of the best restaurants I've ever been to you can book it on OpenTable.com
