Executive chef Alex Ageneau heads the kitchen at this Lettuce Entertain You restaurant with a clear goal: make French food approachable for a new generation of diners. There are plenty of traditional entrees, but you can easily make meal out items from the charcuterie, raw bar or small plate sections of the menu, featuring options such as duck cracklings, puff pastry-wrapped escargot, tuna tartare or French onion fondue. Main courses range from skate wing with capers and lemon to duck confit with candied cherries to traditional French bistro classic of steak frites. Want to really impress your date? Look to the "luxury" corner of the menu, which features $40 Maine lobster frites and Ossetra caviar service for a cool $100. To drink, try the affordable house wine on tap or bubbly cocktails such as the French 59, a mix of St. Germain elderflower liqueur, mandarin orange liqueur and sparkling wine. Upon the second floor, check out indoor-outdoor cocktail lounge Studio Paris, complete with a retractable roof. Weekend brunch brings luxurious dishes like lobster soft scrambled eggs with truffles, Belgian waffles with speculoos, and a half-pound serving of king crab bites.
