This hot spot is sequestered into the opulent emporium by noted interior design firm, Roman and Williams. It’s all in the family here, where the principals have partnered with Stephen Starr—the prolific restaurateur behind neighboring Le Coucou—and the chef, Marie-Aude Rose happens to be married to Le Coucou’s very own Daniel Rose. You’ll find the café on one end of the boutique, lined with powder-blue banquettes and tables prettified by delicate blooms. The open kitchen is a sight unto itself, with sage-green tiles and gleaming cookware. The morning menu offers "eggscellent" dishes and pastries, while dinner pairs classic French food with enticing sips. Don’t miss the heartwarming bœuf bourguignon united with crispy lardons and soft pearl onions.
