The focal point of executive chef Shannon Bennett's modern French dining room is a gleaming open kitchen, and her team's culinary wizardry is reflected in the polished-metal panels above. Grilled Strasbourg foie gras sets the stage for a magnificent duck-leg confit and roasted breast with peaches, pistachios, and thyme; a divine assiette of crème brûlée with mint, carrot, and chestnut makes for a big finish. At dinner, there's no à la carte option: You choose between five- and 14-course degustation menus. Each dish arrives meticulously arranged on a customized plate, interspersed with exquisite palate cleansers such as a smoking shot glass of chilled gazpacho or a kiwi-peppermint "lollipop." If you have the time (and the scratch—$88 for lunch, $132 for dinner), go for the gourmand's menu, paired with vintages from Vue's extensive wine cellar. This is one of the hottest shows in town, so be sure to reserve a table at least two weeks in advance, especially for weekends.

Closed Sundays and Mondays; no lunch on Saturdays.
