THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED NAMES Eau Bistro & Cafe Eau Restaurant Review

: Guests and residents at this upscale hotel complex have five restaurants from which to choose. Topping the list is Eau Bistro, a colorful set of rooms best known for a lavish Sunday brunch. Its dinner menu consistently features quality meats and seafood prepared classically, with a twist --- the free-range chicken, for example, is a deconstructed potpie complete with carrots, peas, pearl onions and puff pastry. The wine list is well curated, and staffers are trained to understand it. Over at the less-formal Café Eau, most patrons have a cocktail or wine glass in hand, especially during happy hour. The vibe is more casual and the menu simpler. A typical breakfast would be eggs, pastry and fruit; in the evening, there are appetizers, flatbreads, panini, wraps and a few entrées --- plus desserts, like gooey butter bread pudding, a riff on a rich, local delicacy. Past 9 p.m., the Café is more about nightlife than food. Note: Eau Bistro is temporarily closed for renovation.
