Fodor's Review

This elegant restaurant is next door to flashy Le Bec-Fin, so it doesn't get the attention it deserves. Service is excellent, as is the food: beef carpaccio, black tagliolini (long, flat pasta) with salmon in a brandy sauce, chicken breast stuffed with fontina cheese and Parma ham, and a simple pasta sautéed with broccoli and sausage. Some dishes are a bit pricey.
