Serving Maine lobster in an apple cider & vanilla reduction, and duck breasts w/ red plum & onion compote, this Bar Breton replacement feels like a jazzed-up bistro (sconce-lit tables, abstract paintings reminiscent of Spirograph art...), and eschews "gastronomic gimmicks" in favor of a "boundary-free approach", so, what, they'll employ overly handsy Italian waiters?
