La Côte Review
With clean white lines, colorful bursts of aqua-blue cushions, and elegant umbrellas, La Côte at the Fontainebleau whisks you away to the coast of southern France. The two-level, predominantly al fresco restaurant snuggled between the beach and the Fontainebleau's pools opens its arms in a generous embrace while flirting with your taste buds, and maybe your man: the female waitstaff wear bikinis and flip-flops. Depending on your tastes, this may or may not foster a relaxed atmosphere that complements the simple elegant menu. Try the popular fruits de mer, or order a variety of oysters on the half shell. The vegetable pissaladière is a great vegetarian option for the table. Eating lunch here is an inexpensive way to get a good peek at the Fontainebleau while having a nice meal.
