Fodor's Expert Review Le Filet
A study in contrasts, Le Filet has a discreet blink-and-you'll-miss-it façade with a glitzy black-and-gold interior and a hot-spot buzz. Though it's been around a while, there is no mixed messaging when it comes to the exacting presentation and superb food and wine. The menu is divided into three courses or "sets"; while the first sets are shareable, cold dishes (the garnished oysters with toppings like maple crisp, jalapeño or miso gratin, are delightful), the second and third courses are respectively dedicated to hot seafood and meat dishes (black linguini with seafood and fried shallots and the gemelli with braised veal cheek, mushroom, and foie gras are popular choices). Wine lovers also appreciate the impressive wine list.
