Fodor's Review

Several sleek dining spaces make up the original, downtown restaurant Café des Artistes; the most beautiful and romantic is the courtyard garden with modern sculpture. The main restaurant achieves a contemporary Casablanca feel with glass raindrops and tranquil music. In either area, choose an appetizer, entrée, and dessert from the three-course bistro menu. Try the creamy soup of smoked chipotle chilies followed by a fresh fillet of fish cooked in one of several Mexican styles, and finishing with the crème brûlée. Also within these walls, Thierry Blouet's Cocina de Autor (closed Sunday and in September) is a limited-seating restaurant pairing four- to six-course tasting menus with or without wines. Decor is restrained, with a waterfall garden behind plate glass taking center stage. In these restaurants, drinks add significantly to the price of the meal. Many diners end the night at the clubby cigar bar or Constantini Wine Bar, which offers some 50 vintages by the glass as well as distilled spirits, appetizers, and live music most nights of the week.
