A two-floor American bistro with a European art-deco motif, Tête-à-Tête Café is, as its name suggests, an optimal spot for good conversation and delicious food. The former is most likely spurred on by exotic coffee drinks, teas, and the café's vibrant artwork. The conversation may come to a quick halt, though, as soon as steamed New Zealand mussels, flame-broiled burgers stuffed with bacon and cheese, and plates of lobster ravioli arrive at the table. But the discussions will certainly continue when it comes to dessert—if only to try to decide what to order. If signature mille crepes and napoleons don’t make the choice difficult enough, there are 11 mousse cakes to choose from, including a caramel bavarian-cream rendition that’s enrobed in Belgian chocolate, and a raspberry mousse wrapped with joconde. Tête-à-Tête Café’s second floor features an intimate bar and lounge that keeps the spirit of its name alive with signature martinis that are great for toasting, sipping, and bobbing for olives.
