This top-notch restaurant concentrates on simple, classic Continental dishes. Starters include lightly cooked scallops. For main courses, the menu divides evenly between seafood and meat; highlights include lobster with cheese ravioli and a delectable beef au poivre. The extensive dessert menu is supplemented with a dozen or so daily specials, all of them enticing. Waiters in tails who are engaged in a sedate bustle enhance the restaurant's contemporary gentleman's-club atmosphere.
