THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED La Belle Vie Restaurant Review

: The elegant 510 Groveland residence building seems a perfect place to showcase the culinary talents of owner-executive chef Tim McKee. High ceilings, crystal chandeliers, sculptures and paintings strategically placed throughout give the restaurant a befittingly hushed, reverent tone. Service is professional, the wine list impressive and McKee’s way of intricately layering flavors, textures and scents as magical as ever. One may encounter spring pea tortelli, foie gras and mushroom, and pan-roasted poussin, duck confit, orange and cumin. Guests can order à la carte or choose a multi-course menu. Our advice? Go with the wine flight and accompanying five-, eight- or 12-course option (think sautéed branzino with lobster, or perhaps grilled dry-aged beef matched with beets, veal sweetbreads and black truffle). By the time you add the house-made artisan breads and amuse-bouche, plus desserts like a pineapple tarte Tatin or Manjari crémeux and pomegranate granita, you will surely have had enough for one evening. That said, you still shouldn't miss the very cool, sexy lounge and bar (which also serves McKee’s food) for one of the creative nightcaps.
