Le Grand Bistro and Oyster Bar
Inside what 5280 Magazine describes as a "125-year-old dining room with original mosaic tile and a sparkling chandelier," restaurateur Robert Thompson and his expert staff have re-created the cuisine and atmosphere of old-school Parisian bistros and brasseries. With locally sourced ingredients, artisanal cheeses, and in-house charcuterie, Chef Sergio Romero and his culinary team craft French cuisine that 5280 Magazine, in its 2011 Best New Restaurants feature, lauded as "light, fresh, and remarkable." French classics such as escargot, steak frites, and a savory crepe of the day complement a selection of cocktails made by mixologist Colin Dart. Diners can savor each bite while nestled into oversized booths or contemplating infinity on the outdoor patio.
