Lacroix at The Rittenhouse Restaurant Review:

About the restaurant: Originally conceived by chef Jean-Marie Lacroix, the godfather of so many talented Philadelphia chefs, this restaurant’s sophisticated approach to ingredient pairings and presentation remains a tribute to his inspiration. A sparely elegant space, Lacroix also includes Bar 210, with its menu of haute bar cuisine and hand-crafted cocktails.

Food & Drinks: The seasonal menu offers either a tasting or à la carte experience, with chef Eric Leveillee overseeing the kitchen. The menu is composed in two sections, with "vegetables" such as carrot with coffee, maple, and hazelnut, followed by "meats" like stuffed pork trotter with sweetbreads, morels and pearl onion or grilled Colorado lamb with gochujang and oxalis. The meal may end on a sweet note with a soufflé. The wine list is 50-plus pages of high-end wines, second-growth Bordeaux, super Tuscans, some Californian wines, and worldwide diversity. Brunch is an unforgettable experience worth the splurge.
