AAA Inspector Notes
The elegance of an old time steak house is steeped in this cafés traditional décor—wood floors, carved mahogany walls and ceilings, decorative wall sconces, chandeliers and historic stained-glass windows. Located amidst the bustling activity of Yale University and local shops, the waitstaff offers a plethora of knowledge and is garbed in crisp black and whites. When available, start with baked escargot in a garlic, parsley, and tomato concassee or the duck foie gras terrine with mango chutney and pickled vegetables. Follow with the beef tenderloin served with their famed French fries and sautéed French-style green beans. Dessert's made by their in house pastry chef are worth the calories, especially the Grand marnier souffle with creme anglaise.
