Gautreau's

Gautreau's Review

This vine-covered neighborhood bistro doesn't have a sign, but that hasn't stopped the national food media from finding it. Lauded chef Sue Zemanick cooks with elegant confidence in a classic French style, but with surprising bursts of understated creativity, evidenced in dishes like pistachio-crusted tuna with salsa verde. At Gautreau's, even the simple roasted chicken satisfies, and everyone should indulge in the caramelized banana split at least once. An older crowd of well-dressed regulars monopolize most of the tables in this dark, quiet space that once housed a pharmacy, but if you can get a reservation, you'll feel like you've gained admittance to an elite club.
