Just because Pascal DiNoia named his new Soho restaurant Elysée Cafe Theatre and structured the French menu like a three-act play, don't expect the waiters—Method-trained, we presume—to lapse into monologues between the Niçoise salad and the steak-frites. The place is just DiNoia's gold-leafed, somewhat theatrical foray into the restaurant business after nineteen years on the prosaic linen-service fringes, and to him, the ritual of dinner is high drama. Behind the scenes, Argentine executive chef Fernando Trocca wields culinary props like chimichurri steak sauce, yuca chips for the salmon tartare, and a tropical-fruit "seviche."
