Le Chef Bistro Restaurant Review

: While many restaurateurs choose to jump on the bandwagon and pursue the latest food fads, Le Chef Bistro owner-chef Frank Lenihan keeps it simple. After all, there's a reason his Southampton restaurant has been going strong for 30 years. Le Chef is famous for its $35 three-course prix-fixe menu. The house-made pâté appetizer accompanied by cornichons is one of the standout offerings, and the soups are generally quite good. Opt for one of the straightforward dishes for a main course, such as local fresh fish with lemon and capers. Dessert includes the namesake cheesecake with strawberry sauce. An à la carte menu proposes more choices with European influence: risotto, salmon and lobster gnocchi. The wine list is short but varied and favors French bottles. A cozy and familiar atmosphere and basic décor complement the food, and service in unobtrusive. The dining room can get crowded and a bit noisy in the high season, given the smallish space.
