Inspector Pick (Value): The meal isn't exactly inexpensive, but it is rare to enjoy a prix fixe meal of such rich, perfectly-crafted fare for less than $100 per person.
This fine dining flagship from Top Chef winner Nicholas Elmi offers a tasting menu of modern French cuisine featuring the freshest ingredients. The nightly changing menu includes a variety of dishes ranging from seafood to vegetarian to funky dessert creations. The kitchen is happy to accommodate allergy or other dietary restrictions. You can enjoy wine pairing or bring your own bottle at no fee. Chef Elmi often presents a course to each table. You'll want to make a reservation, but it may be worth popping by to see if they have an opening. If a table is not available, Laurel's sister restaurant, ITV, is a lovely substitute. It features an a la carte menu.
