Quote as “unpretentious but stylish”, Le Chat Noir, casual bistro-style with Parisian left-bank feel features classic, traditional French cuisine and a large selection of savory and sweet crepes. The Wine Lounge atop Le Chat Noir restaurant pays homage to vintage -- wine-making and a retrospect to Comics Black & White silent films. With an impressive wine list and a wide-range of cocktails for you to choose from, it is a place to share an intimate moment. Cozy home-like ambiance, we look forward to nourishing you and tantalizing your taste buds in our art nouveau inspired Restaurant and Lounge.

"This was just a great experience! If the sister restaurant is like eating in Montmarte, Le Chat Noir is like Limoges ... Just a perfect, well-appointed, small restaurant serving classic French cuisine. The staff are friendly and attentive. I would suggest broadening the wine list a bit, Le Grenier's is bit more extensive.
Looking forward to returning!"

Le Grenier - attic, in English - is a space to enjoy French Cuisine with a great wine selection or craft cocktail in a vintage attic décor, a cozy atmosphere with intimate ambiance on the vibrant H corridor. Chef Thierry Sanchez offered a menu of French dishes with frequent changes that reflect the seasons.

"We've been to Le Grenier before and as in the past, this experience was fanatastic. The food is excellent. The staff pleasant, friendly, and attentive. And, what is not to like about the French accents...you could almost imagine yourself dining in Paris. The wine list encourages you to buy a bottle or two. Despite the typical restaurant mark-up, most wines are in the $35-55 price range and good quality. My only disappointment is that the wine glasses -- while decorative -- are not the best for enjoying a very nice bottle of wine. C'est la vie, you are dining in a French attic."

La Tasca is a careful blend of everything that is good about Spain. Warm décor, authentic cuisine and friendly hospitality. All these go together to create a unique and genuine atmosphere. La Tasca has been described as being “so authentic that you won’t find anything better in Spain”.

"La Tasca is avery nice restaurant. Definitely on the repeat list. The food is exceptional. The wine list was obviously developed by someone who wants to sell wine ... Most bottles under $50. We had a 91pt wine and paid $39. The restaurant is very loud ... Just be aware and be prepared. The tapas are very well portioned. My only complaint would be that Thursday night was adverised as "Flamenco" night ... Dancers came out for only about 9 minutes .... Spread apart in three different sections of the restaurant. After the initial appearance, we never saw them again. Too bad ... While likely amaturish compared to what you will find in Sevilla ... They were very good, very enthusiastic!"

"I've reviewed i Ricchi in the past. Despite the high cost, i Ricchi remains a favourite. Great Northern Italian cuisine. The staff are always excellent. My only complaint would be that the wine list is heavily skewed to triple digit wines. While I'm sure that the sommelier can find some more modestly priced quality wines, the core clienle skews to the over-priced wines."
