élan is a new restaurant by Chef David Waltuck and George Stinson. The menu is the evolution of David Waltuck's groundbreaking cuisine that elevated and sustained Chanterelle as an award-winning restaurant for 30 years. élan emanates an atmosphere that is both sophisticated and full of energy; the service is gracious and smart, yet informal. The restaurant features a spacious front room for cocktails and light fare, a 12-seat bar, and a 44-seat dining room. Casual diners and those seeking more elaborate or special-occasion experiences will be equally welcome. Dinner is served 7 days a week, lunch is served 5 days a week, and David's take on weekend brunch is served Saturday and Sunday.
