In this plush, somewhat stuffy dining room you may enjoy a cuisine that actually befits such a regal establishment. Chef Philippe Ruiz exhibits a refined classical French style sprinkled with youthful inspirations, bringing La Palme d'Or up to par with the city's finest eating establishments. The quality extends from an appetizer terrine of duck foie gras with black truffle, dried-fruit compote and toasted brioche, to an memorable grilled veal chop entrée with coriander emulsion, to a potato sarcophagus stuffed with porcini mushrooms and garlic chips, to a sumptuous crème brûlée napoleon. And on Sundays there is the legendary Biltmore brunch.
