The Black Cat, also called Le Chat Noir, is an excellent French restaurant in Bellingham, Washington, USA. Located on the third floor of a century-old building in the historic Fairhaven district, The Black Cat has a wonderful old-world atmosphere, cool (gothy!) waiters, good taste in background music, and a smoking section that permits clove cigarettes. There's even a beautiful view of Bellingham Bay, and every table has a window seat. The bar is well-stocked, though rather expensive. If you visit The Black Cat, have some Ravenswood Zinfandel with the Steak Manhattan or the Baked Gouda Chicken.
