Aphrodisiac menus and seasonal specials are but two of the reasons to consider this elegant dining room and lounge near the Jewish Quarter. A third is Radek David, a culinary juggernaut with an eye for unusual flavor combinations, sending out dishes like slowly braised lamb haunch with root vegetables, fresh pasta with lobster and tomato, and slow-roasted pork belly with spinach puree. Despite the quality of the cooking, La Veranda remains somewhat overlooked by visitors
(though popular with locals), making a visit to this stylish, softly lighted room feel like you've been let in on a wonderful secret. They have a children's play area on Saturdays.
