Emile's Restaurant Review

: Emile's has long been a destination for diners in search of classic but artfully prepared French-Swiss cuisine. The touches that made the place popular are still here: generously spaced tables, flowers in vases and subtle lighting. Among the many tempting starters are escargots and caviar with truffled egg. Beef filet is paired with a Madagascar pepper sauce; “les fruits de mer” presents scallops, prawns and fresh fish in lobster sauce served in puff pastry. Elaborate desserts include a Grand Marnier or rhubarb soufflé, and the wine list is deep with labels from France and California. The crisp, insightful service, ambience and retro-but-refined food don't come cheap, but a nightly prix-fixe menu offers three courses for $35. An eight-course custom chef's tasting menu and a vegetarian chef's tasting menu are also available. For wine enthusiasts, the restaurant has unlimited free corkage on Tuesday nights.
