Margaux, located in downtown St. Paul, bills itself as a new French brasserie. Located in the renovated historic Rossmor building, the restaurant’s interior is white linen chic. The large storefront windows give the feeling of spaciousness to the relatively small dining
The white linens bring refinement to the otherwise raw finishes. Those raw finishes are more in keeping with the true definition of brasserie, which is a tavern that serves simple meals as well as beverages. Just a few simple materials such as glass tiles and a dramatic French wall mural give this restaurant its appeal.
This restaurant was voted one of the top five new restaurants in the March 2007 issue of Mps/St. Paul magazine.
