The beautifully euro French appointed room is filled with chandeliers, and paintings which is the perfect backdrop to the French inspired menu. My friend, pastry chef Steven Hodge joined me for dinner and a great conversation. We each had the delicious and hearty French Onion Soup ($10) with gruyere cheese, croutons in a delicious broth. We then shared the outstanding 10 hour Beef Braised Brisket ($23) with Israelli cous, caramelized onion and arugula; we also shared the Goat Cheese Soufflé ($16) with vegetable ragout; along with the Plum Tart Tatin ($10) topped with vanilla ice cream for dessert.

The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, you will find a creative cocktail list, beer and wine rounding up the menu along with the full espresso beverage line-up with delicious coffee.
