- Complimentary glass of champagne when you dine at the restaurant
Step into Chef Nicholas Dalton’s Cole neighborhood restaurant, opened in July 2020, and you’ll feel instantly transported to Paris. Steak frites, red wine, crackling-crispy roast chicken, escargots, and authentic French onion soup are all on the menu as this valiant little restaurant that weathered the pandemic for six months as Le Brix, a pizzeria specializing in square, wood-fired pies, fulfills its destiny as a neighborhood hangout serving marvelous French food. Chef Dalton, who cooked at acclaimed restaurants like Mercantile Dining & Provision and Le Bilboquet, loves tradition and invention at the same time. His wontons, made with velvety boudin noir sausages and scallion sauce, are a triumph of east-meets-west cookery. The marble bar and European exit signs all add to the experience, making for a night out that is truly distinctive.
