Proprietor-chef John Harris uses French and Italian culinary traditions as springboards for Lilette's inspired dishes. Look for tomato soup with gnocchetti; panéed black drum with Israeli couscous, leeks, and tomatoes; and roasted muscovy duck breast with cauliflower, buttered breadcrumbs, and sauteed spinach. For dessert, the goat cheese quenelles with lavender honey are as light as sorbet but more satisfying. The wine list has been thoughtfully chosen. Framed mirrors
hang along the maroon walls of the intimate front dining room–cum–bar, and there are also a few tables filling out a second room and a heated patio.
