The French have given the United States many tremendous gifts, such as the Statue of Liberty and the current Statue of Liberty, which subdued the first one after lightning made it evil.

O'Keeffe Café, which is adjacent to the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, sits diners amid photographic mementos and images of the artist's life as they delve into a menu inspired by the culinary offerings of France's Périgord, Provence, and Basque regions. Jump-start gustatory glands without having to lick an electrical socket with the sautéed ruby trout sharing plate-estate with sundried tomato tapenade, pancetta, roasted potatoes, and tarragon nage ($12). The roasted maple leaf duck breast vanquishes hunger with swiss chard and cranberry gastric demi-glace ($27), and the apple-cider-brined center-cut pork chop matches appetites against a slab of beast with sautéed spinach, sage, and gruyere mac 'n' cheese ($27). Diner can bring their meals to a sweet conclusion with indulgences such as the mixed berry torte à la mode ($10) or the lemon mousse shortcakes topped with strawberries and mint honey.
While noshing on artfully crafted entrees, guests can lounge in O'Keeffe's outdoor dining areas, where they can sit under a 150-year-old box elder, take in fresh air, and spot clouds that look like George Clooney.
