Inspector Pick (Classification): I always leave here feeling wowed that this restaurant is able to pull off classic French dining with such finesse, including tableside preparations.
This elegant French restaurant specializes in seafood—oysters flown in from around the world, escargot and scallops St. Jacques, a classic French dish. You will be the envy of other diners if you order one of the oyster or seafood towers, which are both impressively presented. Besides fish and seafood, the menu offers a range of eclectic options from suckling pig to beef cheeks, veal kidneys and the namesake pigs' feet. The dessert tasting platter should finish you off nicely. The restaurant's wine cellar is renowned; ask to speak with the sommelier for assistance.
