Le Foret Restaurant Review

: Glistening chandeliers and the hustle-bustle of the seasoned waiters elevate the atmosphere at Le Foret, a central business district fine dining spot. A chef's tasting menu features four courses that chef Brandon Felder changes daily. Typical menu items might include oysters with caviar, sweetbreads, and a grilled beef tenderloin. The main menu changes seasonally and seeks out local, seasonal ingredients, as well as those sourced from far afield. Sugar-glazed pork belly might be accented with goat cheese, while properly textured 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 masterfully assembled 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.
