  • Chouquet's
    Chef Laurent Guillaume, who has helped open hotels and restaurants in Paris, brings years of culinary expertise to Chouquet’s menu and adorns time-tested continental fare with surprising New World elements. Attentive servers emerge from the kitchen carrying escargot and niçoise salads, cruising past sleek stools at a bar accented by swirls of natural wood grain and designed by Dominique Maxime Genauzeau. On the patio, diners soak up the sun or choose least-favorite clouds for a sky writer to edit out. The dining room's sand-hued walls and burnt-orange accents resound with the sounds of glasses clinking together, bearing more than 70 wines from Europe, South America, and the Pacific Northwest and a rotating selection of draft beers from France and the United States.

  • Curbside Cafe
    Five Things to Know About Curbside Cafe Owner Olivier Perrier greets regulars at Curbside Cafe just like he would family, with a kiss for each cheek and a warm smile. After growing up in a small town near Lyon, France, he found a way to bring some of that international charm to this local cafe, which serves up a mix of brunch fare, sandwiches, and upscale entrees. Read on to learn more about this cozy spot: Owner Olivier really knows his stuff. That’s because he spent five years waiting tables and managing the restaurant before taking over ownership in 2010 with his wife Gwyneth. The romantic atmosphere makes it a perfect date spot. A few regulars have gotten engaged at the cafe. It’s even where Olivier and Gwyneth originally met. You won’t have to break the bank for a fine-dining experience. The $20 prix fixe menu includes soup or salad, an entree such as chicken piccata or pot roast, a dessert, and a glass of red or white wine. Don’t plan on a late supper, though. While the prix fixe menu is a great deal, it’s only offered between 5 and 6 p.m. They’re committed to fresh food. Since taking over, Olivier has changed several vendors in the hopes of achieving the kind of farm fresh food he was accustomed to in his small French town.
