From industry all-stars Stephen Starr (the restauranteur behind Morimoto and Buddakan) and chef Daniel Rose (the chef behind Spring and La Bourse et La Vie in Paris), Le Coucou is an upscale French restaurant full of decadent reinventions of classic Gallic dishes. For example, instead of steak frites, you'll find a filet of beef with bone marrow jus and oxtail potatoes. The high-ceilinged Soho space is ornately decorated with grand chandeliers and sweeping white curtains. Oh la la indeed.
