The name Frank Ruta has become synonymous with top notch food and worth-the-wait dining. The former chef at Palena (where diners happily endured a 45-minute prep time for his roasted chicken), the James Beard winner once again had guests on the edge of their dining chair when he opened Mirabelle in early 2017. Along with his pastry chef Angie Chin, the duo dishes out elevated French fare, including braised veal shoulder and a butterscotch cremeux (available only at lunch) that’s so rich they only serve it in 4 ounce portions.
