Concierge.com's insider take:
It may be located in San Juan, but Trois Cent Onze feels as if it was airlifted directly from France. A former photo studio elegantly restored and inlaid with colorful Moroccan mosaic tiles, the restaurant is a labor of love overseen by the husband-and-wife team of Christophe Gourdain (formerly of Jean Georges in Manhattan) and Sylma Pérez, a onetime Ralph Lauren designer. Chef Juan Peña sticks close to French tradition with dishes like escargot in puff pastry, duck magret roasted with honey and served with pumpkin salpicon, and Caribbean lobster tail with Champagne beurre blanc. It may be a bit serious for the tropics, but it gives SoFo (South Fortaleza Street) a hefty dose of class.
Open Mondays and Tuesdays 6 to 10:30 pm, Wednesdays through Fridays noon to 3 pm and 6 to 10:30 pm, Saturdays 6 to 10:30 pm, and Sundays noon to 10 pm.
