Clamato

Septime’s chic seafood bar is wildly popular – join the lively crowd sharing shellfish towers, tapas, small plates, natural wine, and craft beer & cocktails. Products are so fresh that the menu changes every single day.

  

Bistrot Paul Bert

Even after 20 years, Bertrand Auboyneau’s classic bistrot is world-renowned for its rustic French comfort food like eggs & black truffle shavings, peppery filet mignon in Cognac butter cream sauce, house made frites, cheese platters, soufflés & bottles of natural wine. It is literally, my favorite place to eat in the world.
