Longtime Chef Louis Perrotte hand-picked his protégé Reimund Pitz to take the reins at this classic French romantic restaurant, an Orlando institution since 1976. Diners, many of whom are here celebrating a special occasion, feel more like they're guests in a home than paying patrons, an illusion that’s extended by its mostly residential neighborhood. Pitz is classically trained as a French chef, so you get the complicated flavors (a well-marinated coq au vin, a daily selection of game meat, Grand Marnier soufflé) that the prices demand, plus Gallic staples such as frog legs and vichyssoise. Some dishes come in ample half portions that can cost two-thirds what larger servings do. A three-course prix-fixe menu goes for $35.
