THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Rouge Restaurant Review

: Though we wouldn’t really go so far as to call this a fusion restaurant, we noticed that chef David Ruggerio tends to get a little creative with his interpretations of French bistro fare. And make no mistake---we like it! With items such as miso cod, roast salmon and risotto, and duck breast in morel sauce to choose from, even the most diverse group of diners can be happy. A small, but well-chosen, cheese selection allows people with no sweet tooth to indulge in some rather different after-dinner nibbles. Their sugar-loving friends dig into the crème brûlée trio or waffles and maple-glazed bananas. Wine drinkers will be happy to find some good bottles available for very reasonable prices.
