Restaurant Details

Cheery young manager Guillaume Hanriot from Champagne, France, now oversees the two intimate dining rooms at Café des Amis while another French expatriate, Frank Marciniak, tends to matters in the kitchen. They make a good team. A supper here really does feel like an evening in Paris, particularly when Edith Piaf is warbling over the speakers and young lovers are holding hands, sipping wine and indulging in succulent lamb or sherry-scented scallops. It’s also one of the few restaurants in town that serves sautéed frog legs — reportedly one of the most powerful aphrodisiacs— in an exquisite garlic-wine sauce. The rest of the culinary offerings are just as sexy, right down to the dessert plate, its tiny espresso cup filled with a dark chocolate mousse and a petite crème brûlée. — Charles Ferruzza
