Le Foret Restaurant Review

: Elevating the atmosphere at Le Foret, glistening chandeliers and the hustle-bustle of the waiters make this restaurant a special place. A chef's tasting menu features five daily changing courses. Typical dishes might include oysters with caviar, sweetbreads, and a grilled beef tenderloin. The main menu presents dishes featuring local and seasonal ingredients, as well as those sourced from far afield. Sugar-glazed pork belly may be accented with goat cheese, while risotto is filled with lobster and shrimp. When soft-shell crabs are in season, they are prepared with a cornmeal crust and a salad of jumbo lump crab meat and cherry tomatoes. Order the Black Forest soufflé (if available) at the beginning of your meal, so it's ready when you are for dessert. The wine list includes selections from California's best producers and first-rate choices from Burgundy and Bordeaux, in addition to several options from Spain's Vega Sicilia. Le Foret is a destination for grown-up dining. Servers are well-informed in regard to ingredients, preparations and wine recommendations. Lunch on Thursdays and Fridays is best and most economically enjoyed via the chef’s three-course prix-fixe menu. (Note: Former chef Brandon Felder has left the restaurant.)
