The 106-year-old restaurant in the Adolphus Hotel downtown has been restored to its beaux-arts glory, with a dining room of creamy whites and gilded edges, towering floral arrangements, cheese and caviar trollies, and all the trappings of old-school fine dining. An a la carte menu has been added alongside the traditional five-course tasting, both as refined and quietly French as their surroundings. A starter of veal sweetbreads, the main-course chicken, plus selections from the cheese cart and the pavolva are among the highlights on a menu that is generally delicious if timid. On the other hand, the wine list, by the glass or the bottle, is among the most exciting in the city. --Michalene Busico/Restaurant Critic
