Fodor's Review

Named for King Farouk (who ruled from 1936 to 1952), this restaurant used to be his summer office. The decor is definitely fit for a king: alabaster columns, china, and stained-glass windows. The gorgeously printed menu mixes old photos of royal weddings and affairs of state with dishes on an internationally regal theme. Look for tender foie gras Louis XV (foie gras in a port-wine sauce) or decadent Caviar Raspoutine (caviar selection with blinis) served on a bed of ice.

The best entrées are the sharkesseya d'Istanbul (chicken stewed in a subtle walnut sauce) and the filet blanc et noir Ras el-Tin (veal and beef steaks with foie gras and mushrooms).
