A superior kitchen is seamlessly paired with bistro informality. Start your experience with traditional pâté de maison (liver pâté partnered with quince marmalade, wine preserves, and plenty of homemade croutons). Seared east coast scallops with truffled mushroom risotto is a treat, and a roasted half chicken with herb garlic au jus crackles with crispness and Provençal flavor. Ask about the wild-game dish of the day. Faux stone walls stenciled with
Jean Cocteau-esque modernist designs, sturdily upholstered chairs, and a tiled floor make the dining area sophisticated but comfortable.
