Fodor's Expert Review L'Avant-Goût

$$$ The Latin Quarter Casual

Editor's Note: This location is reported to be under new ownership and therefore this review may contain inaccuracies.

Arnaud Van Santen belongs to a generation of gifted bistro chefs who have rejected the pressure-cooker world of haute cuisine in favor of something more personal and democratic. Typical of his market-inspired cooking is his signature pot-au-feu de cochon aux épices, in which spiced pork stands in for the usual beef, and the bouillon is served separately. Children get an especially warm welcome here.
