Coupling refined bistro fare with gastronomic cuisine in a friendly neighborhood atmosphere, executive chef Martial Noguier (formerly of Cafe des Architectes) is at the helm of this Gold Coast spot. The kitchen turns out seasonal entrees such as pan-roasted Magret duck breast and filet of beef au poivre, with small bites such as Belgian endive salad, cauliflower veloute, and Chiogga beet salad. The decor will be approachable and minimalist; think dark wooden tables rather than your traditional white bistro tablecloths. The wine program features picks from both the Pacific Northwest region and old-world bottles from France. A cheese and charcuterie menu is a tasty match for an after-work drink.
