AAA Inspector Notes
Situated in the heart of the Culinary Institute of America's campus, this traditional French restaurant features many modern twists. The main dining room showcases large, modern chandeliers that are accompanied by decorative wall sconces in the shape of a chef's hat. For those of you who are interested in watching the chefs in action, make sure to request a table by the window that overlooks the kitchen. Or you can just enjoy one of the tableside presentations. With many delicious options on the menu, this restaurant features locally and regionally fresh ingredients. Specialty items include black truffle soup, roasted rack and epigram of lamb, and breast of duck with blood orange sauce. Enjoy a smoked Manhattan or ice cream, which are prepared tableside for your viewing pleasure. The restaurant is often closed during school breaks.
