From Our Editors
Autour du Monde takes its name from the world travels of its founders, who reflect their wanderlust in the restaurant’s subdued purple accents and vintage globes. These international inspirations also inform the dinner menu, which transforms seasonal ingredients into hearty appetizers such as butternut squash soup with pumpkin-seed oil ($7). Duck and lamb entrees such as the duck breast in blood-orange reduction ($20) dazzle adventurous taste buds with more color choices than a jumbo box of crayons inside a jumbo bag of jellybeans. Omnivores, meanwhile, can dig into a double filet of boneless trout served with quinoa and cumin carrots ($20) while admiring the way the sconce lighting’s refracted halos play upon the violet and marigold walls.
