Once the hottest restaurant in town and awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand, Le Garage has been under scrutiny recently for slipping standards of service; the jury is still out on this but the food is certainly holding up. Try tuna pizza or piles of oysters or go for the astonishingly good-value six-course menu that offers brasserie favorites including fish croquettes, veal cutlet, and crème brûlée. It’s such a sparkly, glitzy restaurant, with bright lights, big mirrors, and bright-red banquettes somehow reminiscent of Las Vegas that is feels rude not to pull on the glad rags to go eat there. Reservations recommended.
