The $5 burger and fries special at Can Can Brasserie is great. You have to sit at the bar to get the lunch-special price and it’s available every weekday from 11 – 3. The burger is made with nothing but good beef, salt and pepper and the fries are the best in Richmond – really. The lemonade (free-refills) is home-made and very good also. The restaurant makes its own mayo and mustard – that’s just cool. They also have an excellent bakery. Once-in-a-while, the service at the bar sucks.
I give the whole experience an 18 out of 20.
There is also a mussels special at the lunch counter during the week. The mussels with a baguette is one of my favorite meals in town.
