If you miss Billy Allin’s now-shuttered Cakes & Ale (and who doesn’t?), know that you can now find the master of simplicity himself behind the stove at his ever-so-French, all-day cafe. Pop in for a croissant and a cafe au lait before work, treat yourself to a fine lunch of shrimp remoulade or trout salad, or linger over a dinner of garlic sausage over lentils or truffled penne au gratin with Gruyère and Parmesan. The tiny bar and the various dining areas smack of Paris at its most romantic. 290 Elizabeth Street, 678-515-4536,
