Dominique Crenn opened this chic and natural oasis in an unexpected part of town, but it only adds to the feeling of calm once you step inside from the busy bar scene nearby. Her two Michelin star restaurant is in homage to her father, an artist, and her menu is delivered to guests in an envelope as a poem. Crenn’s highly personal menu unfolds with exquisite seafood, paying homage to the little jewels of the sea that they are, and many of the following dishes are interactive and offer a bit of a tableside show. Ingredients are clean and bright and alluring, and the dessert courses from Juan Contreras are unlike any you have had before (it’s like taking an edible nature walk). There is so much whimsy and beauty in a meal here, filling diners with delight (and their glasses with beautiful wines).
