The French-American menu at this brick-walled, wine-bottle-lined subterranean restaurant is divided, as is the style nowadays, into tasting and sharing-size portions, but you might not be inclined to surrender even a bite of rich, creamy lobster risotto, or dainty, refreshing herb salad. Chef Kay Chun pushes every trendy culinary button: a seasonal slant, the obligatory offal, and artisanal American cheeses, preferably from California's Cowgirl Creamery.Recommended Dishes
