THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Le Yaca Restaurant Review

: When you learn that French-born chef-owner Daniel Abid is an Alain Ducasse disciple who honed his craft at some of the world’s most high-profile restaurants, your expectations understandably heighten even before entering this romantic, country-French charmer. And after one bite of the food, perhaps coquilles St-Jacques or steak au poivre, they are met. Le Yaca’s original owners brought Abid from France to be head chef when they opened the restaurant in 1980; he then purchased the property with its welcoming fireplace in 2001. Guests may order à la carte or opt for a three-course prix-fixe dinner, which may start with soupe à l’oignon, progress to poached salmon, and conclude with a Grand Marnier soufflé (requiring 25 minutes notice). There’s also a nine-course chef’s dégustation menu. Be sure to ask for wine suggestions to accompany your very elegant French meal. While it’s acceptable to don resort casual wear to dine at Le Yaca, the experience surely warrants more dressy attire if you’re so inclined.
