Downtown’s Avenue Internationale

Owner Jennifer Dubay.

Wild and crazy kids that we are, your dsm crew was out on the town last night. We were eager to try the new Bar Taureau, just up the street from our dsm offices here in The Depot on Fourth. Parisian-inspired, Bar Taureau serves elegant cocktails, cheese and charcuterie boards, salads, sandwiches and bar snacks. (Also wine and beer, but the ambiance is more cocktail-culture.)

After trying a Peach-Tarragon Caipirinha and a vieux carre, we may have mumbled, “c’est tres bon.”

A very satisfying Peach-Tarragon Caipirinha.

Bar Taureau is located in the reviving Randolph building along Des Moines’ avenue internationale: Fourth Street downtown. Consider the two short blocks south of Walnut include:
• the Japanese sushi of Wasabi Tao
• the British style of the Royal Mile
• the Belgian flare of the Red Monk
• the Polynesian playfulness of Fong’s Pizza
• the tortillas of Bernardo’s Burritos
• the Bavarian beers of Hessen Haus
• and now the joie de vivre of Bar Taureau

And still, no passports or vetting required. Welcome to our neighborhood.
