Rating: The Michelin Plate

What the Michelin inspectors said…

This gilded French palace boasts some serious Great Gatsby vibes—down to the classic coupes filled with sparkling Grüner Veltliner and the glowing green lights above the restrooms. Self-made millionaires may splurge on a bone-in côte de boeuf, while the merely well-off content themselves with the exquisite beef tartare, served in a silver bowl atop crushed ice. The menu tilts heavily towards steak, but its pleasures are consistent across the board. Textbook-perfect roast chicken arrives in a piping-hot cast-iron dish, accompanied by crisped potatoes and a tiny pitcher of chicken jus. An orange-inflected hazelnut torte, with a crunchy feuilletine base, is another must-try. In warmer months, the garden party-esque patio makes for a pretty perch.

We want to try…

Grilled Faroe Island salmon aux lentilles, with braised beluga lentils, aromatic vegetables and lemon beurre blanc ($27).
