If this tiny French restaurant keeps up its standards, look for Stars in its future. Even the drinks are exceptional. The octopus is a home run, as is the hanger steak. The roasted chicken’s skin is sublimely crispy, and the meat is so moist it melts in your mouth. The baba au rhum makes for happy diners, especially with the rum bottle left on the table!
