Working years ago under the talented Alessandro Stratta at Mary Elaine's and eventually climbing his way up to chef de cuisine, Bradford Thompson creates artistry every evening with a modern French style that meshes old techniques with new. Besides displaying Thompson's talent, the institution has an impressive $3 million wine collection of more than 44,000 bottles presided over by highly skilled sommeliers.
