The first restaurant from Michelinstarred chef Bruno Davaillon is a stunner, suspended in a golden vessel beneath a downtown office tower and decorated with brassy elegance. Davaillon’s menu of updated brasserie classics — pâté en croûte, steak tartare, canard à l’orange — can be revelatory, and it is equaled by Ricardo Sanchez’s exquisite desserts (don’t miss the mille-feuille). The elegant bar is a destination of its own, offering a full menu, refined cocktails and even a bargain happy hour called L’apero. A smart, all-french wine list covers the full range of styles, regions and prices.
