Cafe des Banques
Cafe des Banques Review
This sleek, contemporary restaurant illuminated by sculptural chandeliers and dressed in white, chocolate, and taupe serves a mix of traditional and modern seasonal dishes to a chic crowd. While the menu is updated seasonally, specialties like the sesame-crusted tuna with bok choy and airy stracciatella with pillowy housemade blinis are always on offer. The focus on the seasons extends to the wine list, which focuses on Swiss, French, and Italian wines and changes regularly. The entire experience ends on a sweet—and nostalgic note—with large candy jars filled with M&Ms, gummy bears, and other childhood favorites.
