- Innovation like Ubuntu + Commis
- Perfect execution like L'Amborisie
- Variety like Jean-Georges
Service and wine list has plenty of room for improvement but the food made up for everything.
Winter day rise and shine,
life awakes to morning light until the sunset glow
After 2010 La Paulee Grand Tasting with appetizers prepared by Boulevard, Acquerella, Jardiniere RN74, Slanted Door, Quince... , we were a tough crowd to please. Chef Dominique excelled and surprised us with the creativity, beauty, texture, and flavor. We LOVE Luce and vow to return for the spring menu.
