Noisette Restaraunt & Patisserie
The gist: Husband-and-wife team Tim and Lillian Lu—both classically trained alum from The French Culinary Institute in New York—opened this elegant French restaurant and bakery in late 2022 and it’s been a hit ever since.
The food: Classy. Refined. Packed with flavor but polished to perfection. The bakery is where you’ll probably have a religious experience tasting the buttery, flakey delight of a croissant, quiche, or tart, and staying for dinner will transport you to the land of romance and opulence itself. The menu features a curated list of by-the-book traditional French dishes and accoutrements, including foie gras, potato confit, apple puree, and cassoulet. And if there’s one dessert you should stick around for, it’s this one.
