Their seasonally inspired French American menu has an extensive raw bar and vibrant starters such as kale with sweet onion, chilled sweet pea soup blends that harmoniously with radishes and mint or char grilled octopus with fennel and orange salad. For main dishes, the Lamb Chops are a must-try, as is the Black Bass in a seafood broth with fresh fava beans. Chef Biju pays homage to both his upbringing in India’s fishing town of Kerala and his French culinary training with a menu that will delight both the carnivore and vegetarian. His love of seafood is evident with a selection of simple, yet elegant dishes that are both flavorful and fresh such as the tuna tartare with a light Dijon dressing and the crab imperial flatbread. Be sure to leave room for dessert because their Banana Cream Pie will knock your socks off! The plush restaurant also underwent a soft renovation to feature a brighter setting with open windows and natural light.
