Food Scene
(Hotspot in the city.) Delicious french cuisine, with an amazing bread basket! Start to finish this place is wonderful and every dish is decadent. Breakfast (and weekend brunch) is amazing and in my experience, the best in the city and remarkably affordably priced. Recommend reservations in advance as this place is always full.

Hands down, one of the top 3 restaurants in the city. Reservations in advance are highly recommended. But, my favorite is walking in and asking for a seat at the bar where they also serve food.
