  • Tartine
    Though she grew up in New Orleans, Cara Benson cultivated her pastry skills at the French Culinary Institute in Manhattan. Homesickness soon kicked in, however, and after a year of working in Lower East Side kitchens, Cara moved back home to take the title of pastry chef at Muriel's Jackson Square. Three years later, Cara can be found in the kitchen of her own eatery, Tartine, where she draws on French culinary influences and her extensive pastry training to bake bread in-house. Ingredients such as onion marmalade, pickled carrots, and steak pistou grace these grains in the form of sandwiches and open-faced tartines, while daily-made bagels and quiche grace plates at breakfast. Meals unfold inside Tartine’s cozy dining room or on the back patio, which doubles as a teatime party locale capable of accommodating 30–45 people.

  • Herbsaint
    With a French-Italian menu that features dishes such as butter-poached tuna and slow-cooked lamb neck with saffron fideo, Herbsaint would likely feel right at home in any major European city. But then it wouldn't have access to the beloved local farms that provide nearly all of the menu's ingredients, from its heirloom tomatoes to its honey.
