Fodor's Review

Downtown's newish Mint Plaza, tucked behind the city's 1874 federal mint, is home to this utterly urban 70-seat restaurant, with its exposed concrete, bare-wood-topped tables, and high black ceiling. The outdoor patio gets packed during lunch and on warm evenings. A contemporary French menu—beef tartare, sous vide duck egg and confit hash, braised beef cheeks, cocoa nib éclair—reads like a culinary retelling of An American in Paris. A three-course prix-fixe business lunch ($24), with a few choices in each category, is available. And for the deal-seeking after-work crowd, happy hour delivers six-buck classic cocktails and some bar nibbles from 5 to 7 pm weekdays.
