Le Petit Cafe
Three floors below the glitzy Bistro St. Tropez lies another side of French cuisine. Chef Patrice Rames founded both establishments, and at Le Petit Cafe he shows off recipes that are no less carefully composed for being less formal. In addition to Illy coffee drinks, croissants, and classic French pastries, the menu presents quiche, salads, and sandwiches such as the croque monsieur or an ultra-savory combination of Virginia ham, thyme, caramelized onion, and gruyere.
The staff's minds may be in France much of the time, but their feet are planted firmly in Le Petit Cafe's actual neighborhood. They source as many ingredients as possible locally, complementing other green initiatives such as using compostable serving ware.
