Whether it's the opera crowd grabbing a preperformance meal, the weekend brunch set jockeying for an outside table, or the neighborhood's night owls coming in for a drink and a bite at the bar, this corner restaurant seems to be always busy. Chef Adam Keough's brasserie-inspired menu of onion soup, cold-seafood platters, beef tartare, and potato-crusted Artic char is well-matched with an upscale, dark wood–lined, white-tablecloth dining room. The bar and lounge, reminiscent of a belle époque Parisian café, offer an excellent late-night bar menu, with oysters, grass-fed-beef burger (delicious with caramelized onions and a fried egg), and the soft garlic pretzels with Mornay sauce (a must). Desserts range from tried-and-true French favorites like the chocolate pot de crème to fanciful creations that use tarragon meringue or bergamot curd. A hearty weekend brunch is designed to heal—ditto for the decadant cocktails.
