The food

Takeaway versions of the French diner’s best sellers: the signature Beaufort-topped burger, fried chicken, salads and desserts (including slices of their famous lemon meringue pie). New items include the Junior Aloette Burger, triple-fried beef fat fries (a vegan version is available by request) and soft-serve ice cream sundaes made with cultured cream and milk from Harmony.

The hand-cut taters here are fried not once, not twice but three times, in beef fat (but a vegan version is available upon request).


The Aloette fries come topped with cheese sauce and spicy relish. $6.50.


The watermelon salad features Serrano ham, fennel and feta (and watermelon, of course). $14.

Takeout has come a long way.

The drinks

A selection of Boylan’s sodas, Woodhouse beer, Aloette’s private label VQA wines and canned cocktails. The current menu of cocktails includes the bourbon-based Longchamp, the cold brew–infused Frizz-presso Martini and a tequila take on a negroni.

Aloette’s Soigné wines are young red, white and rose wines from Pearl Morissette and Malivoire.
The space

The first in a series of Aloettes optimized for takeout and delivery (they’ve already secured two more leases) this Liberty Village location is outfitted with a takeout window to expedite orders for delivery drivers. For those who can’t wait to get home before digging in, there are some communal tables in the covered walkway nearby.
