The Low Down


Save Money: The prix fixe menus are more reasonable than at most of the city's other fine French restaurants. While a three-course lunch costs $28, both four-course and five-course dinner menus are $42.

Know Before You Go: The menus change about every six weeks. Check the restaurant website for details.
