Fodor's Review

Named after a local chili pepper (and not a local temptress), this restaurant seems haunted by the spirit of Auguste Escoffier. Large portions and cream sauces are well represented on the menu, and hollandaise and cheese sauces abound. Presentation is an essential part of the dining experience here, and entrées rise majestically off their plates. The best part is that everything tastes as good as it looks, so those looking for a more traditional but exquisite meal will

be very pleased. Try the lamb or beef rotisseries with one of the special sauces; if you're in the mood for something lighter, there are tasty salads. For an overwhelming finish, top off your meal with a sundae that billows over the edges of a massive champagne glass. Savor each course in the outdoor pebble garden, where tabletop candles cast a soft glow. Note that you may feel a bit hot in the outdoor area given the relative lack of breezes.
