Concierge.com's insider take:
Chef-owners Yves Rebsamen and Eric Cherval trained on the Michelin-starred circuit but abandoned the luxe temples of gastronomy for this surprisingly unpretentious restaurant. The small terrace on the square and the even more attractive dining room (which updates stone walls and heavy timbers with blond wood furniture and contemporary artwork) are always packed with migratory hipsters. It's also become a hangout for Gevrey-Chambertin's winemakers. Eavesdropping is easy, and if you're not shy, you might be able to get some insider information. On the menu, you'll find the kind of international haute cuisine you've seen in San Francisco and Sydney—but dinner (prix fixe only) will set you back only about $50 per person. Look for updated regional classics such as house-made ham in parsley aspic or beef cheeks in a bourguignon sauce and perhaps fresh truffles and panna cotta for dessert. The wine list includes entry-level bottles by young winemakers and dozens of Gevrey's biggest, most expensive vintage reds, many of which are impossible to find elsewhere.—David Downie
