Fodor's Expert Review Le Zandoli
Although "le zandoli" is the creole term for the lowly gecko, there's nothing humble about the culinary presentation or the wildly colorful dining room here, which are as slick as anything you might encounter in Paris. The executive chef has worked in Michelin-starred restaurants in France and brings Southeast Asian techniques from his stint in Jakarta. At the start of the meal, an amuse-bouche or two will whet your appetite. The three-course, prix-fixe menu is continually evolving, affected by seasonal market finds and influenced by five continents—one common main is the fillet of beef with chanterelle mushrooms. One can opt for just two courses for a lower price. You may want to arrive for your dinner reservation early so that you can sit at the bar, which looks like an avant-garde movie set, and have a fanciful, fresh juice cocktail with tiny accoutrements. And in any given month there may be a reception and art exhibition, fashion show or a gala party.
