Le Petit Paris
Situated in the historic El Dorado building downtown, Le Petit Paris isn't exactly petit: the sophisticated bi-level brasserie features a downstairs dining area, large outdoor patio, and two bars, plus a grand staircase and an abundance of murals and chandeliers that serve as an elegant backdrop for its traditional French entrees. From brunch to dinner, the menu here features classic dishes such as croque madame, steak frites with bearnaise sauce, Cognac-flambéed whole-roasted lobster, and a truffle rossini burger. You'll want to top off your meal with the bourbon-vanilla crème brûlée.
The spectacular interior of the former El Dorado Hotel lobby here at this Downtown brasserie is worth a visit alone. And while you’re checking out those circular crystal chandeliers and grand staircase, you might as well order up a cocktail and some oysters. And since you’re there, you might as well stick around for the Crispy Duck Breast, or go big with the Cognac-Flambeed Lobster or Truffle Burger.
