Our Dining Rooms

Join us for lunch or dinner, or reserve one of our dining rooms for your next special event.

Front Dining Room

Our main dining room seats up to 64 and can be reserved for private use with a minimum guarantee of 40.

West Dining Room

Our west dining room seats 25 comfortably and can be reserved for private use with a minimum guarantee of 18.

The maps and photos in the main dining room showcase the great vineyards of the Cote d’Or and Chablis.  Our smaller dining room recalls fond memories of our travels in Alsace and in the Loire Valley and includes a tribute to the French legend Serge Gainsbourgh.

Between the two rooms Turgot’s 1739 plan of Paris holds pride of place.

Our Menus

Our menus in the restaurant are designed to bring you classical French food prepared to reflect the changing seasons.  We use the freshest and the highest-quality ingredients that we can find in the Chicago markets.  And in the ancient tradition to which we ascribe, we treat these ingredients with the respect that they demand and deliver them to you at their peak of flavor.
