  Cuisine: French, Mediterranean  
  Location: Mid City West  


Renowned Chef Suzanne Goin, owner of restaurants Tavern and Lucques, has combined forces with sommelier Caroline Styne to create a winning feel-good Mediterranean menu in an intimate ambience.

Start by nibbling on the goodies from the hearty Cheese and Charcuterie board. For something more substantial, choose from a list of fresh and local favorites, including Duck Confit with black rice, pomegranate and walnuts, the Brioche with prosciutto, gruyere and egg, or the imaginative Autumn Peaches, burrata, cumin and almonds.

The tapas-style plates are complemented by an extensive regional and European wine list. Leave room for the decadently delicious chocolate peanut butter brownie with salted caramel. A choice spot is a stool at the Bar-- the perfect place to catch up with friends and cozy setting for a date.

The European/Mediterranean favored menu includes crispy Pork Belly with mustard sauce, or the grilled Polenta with alba, shitake and oyster mushrooms & creamy gorgonzola fonduta. Farro Salad with asparagus, pepitas, feta & mint is a particular favorite.
