After a 22-year-tenure at the Peabody Hotel, celeb-chef José Gutierrez set out to go it alone. He didn't go far (just around the corner), though he dropped a lot of Chez Philippe's stately pretense in favor of a more modern ambience: dark woods and dimmed lights. The menu is primarily French, but Italian, Spanish, Southern, and Asian influences creep in. In the cooler months, Gutierrez prepares homemade sausages and blends them into a creamy lentil soup, and fills flaky puffed pastry with hearty chicken stew. When the weather gets sticky, he tops fluffy pizza crust with smoked salmon, Mascarpone, sweet onions, and arugula.

Closed Mondays.
