Old is decidedly nouvelle again in this smart descendant of the beloved La Vielle Maison. The setting is bold, artful yet comfortably French, and the menu is beautifully sophisticated: Foie gras updated with caramelized plum and Vermont maple syrup; scallops with lentils, porkbelly and fennel cream; the duck with red cabbage and black barley as well as orange. Caviar and bubbly, too; dramatic pastries are the true indulgence.
