Young, old, hipsters, politicos, and business execs all flock to Le Pigeon (via bike, skateboard, or BMW) to tuck into the seriously satisfying, soul-reviving, lick-your-plate-clean food. This tiny gem, on a major thoroughfare in a nondescript part of town, is decorated in a funky, rustic style, with pots hanging from the rack above the open kitchen, and mismatched cutlery on the tables. The communal tables lend a decidedly convivial spirit to the place, and the vibe is warm and cozy, like a French farmhouse kitchen. But ultimately the focus is on the wildly original food of young hotshot chef Gabriel Rucker. You'll find standouts like pumpkin-almond soup with rabbit rillette; truffle gnocchi with smoked pigeon; and venison with apples, chestnuts, and marrow. If you're feeling daring by dessert, try the cornbread with maple ice cream and bacon, or profiteroles with foie gras ice cream.

Open daily 5 pm to close.
