Fodor's Expert Review La Cave à Vins

$$$ Fort-de-France French

After you ring the bell, someone will peek out (as in a speakeasy), and the front door of this landmark restaurant will open on a small shop selling French food items, chocolates, and fine wine. Behind the sales floor are two dining rooms, the first modern and whimsical, the second with murals of the French countryside and an impressive, domed skylight that compensates somewhat for the lack of windows. Meals begin with an amuse-bouche, such as coriander sorbet. One signature dish is duck breast Rossini (with foie gras) finished with a sauce of morels. Contemporary desserts complement such richness; mango pie topped with vanilla ice cream is Martinique's answer to our apple pie. The menu is the same for lunch and dinner, with not much in the way of light fare. It is likely the proprietress, Madame Clementine, will serve you well; it all makes for a most gracious experience.
