La Bourgogne Review

White tablecloths, fresh roses, and slick red-leather chairs emphasize the restaurant's innate elegance, and it is consistently considered to be one of the city's very best restaurants. A sophisticated waitstaff brings you complimentary hors d'oeuvres as you choose from chef Jean-Paul Bondoux's creations, which include foie gras, rabbit, lamb, chateaubriand, côte de veau (veal steak), and black hake. The loquacious chef is known to stroll through the vast room and sit down for a chat with patrons. The fixed-price tasting menu is more affordable and more adventurous than à la carte selections and features a different wine with each plate. Arrange to be seated in the mysterious wine cellar for a more intimate experience. The wine list reads like a book, and offers the very best blends from France, Italy, and Argentina.
