Capturing the essence of the French Riviera, Côte d'Azur offers a blend of country fare, exotic ingredients, and slow-cooked goodness with a menu that executes French technique with perfection and joie de vivre. The narrow dining room, with yellow-striped awnings and windows inset with mirrors and decorated with flower boxes, suggests a French provincial sidewalk café. The whole fish of the day is flown in directly from Europe. The regular menu is intriguing, too, with
dishes including Maine lobster roasted in a clay pot with golden beets, herbs, and caviar champagne sauce; and roasted duck with sun-dried currants and cherries, green peppercorn port sauce, and roasted pear.
