The menu emphasizes light fare, a rarity for most French restaurants, and includes a nice mix of seafood, meat, and vegetarian dishes, including the Grilled Polenta. Its salads are creative and feature such "hmm-this-is-certainly-different" type selections like Roasted Duck mixed with Spring Greens. The interior has an elegant feel. If visiting in the summer definitely opt for its outdoor patio. This is a local favorite and reservations are urged.

The New York Post termed the highbrow Caribou Club the best private club in America. The key word here is private, because if you want to gain access, you need a current member to sponsor you. But it is a small price to pay for a few nights of high society and five-star cuisine. Chat with a renowned sommelier and sample wines from a cellar containing more than 5000 selections from around the world. Or, relax with a cigar in an overstuffed chair by the roaring fireplace in the Great Room. After dinner, things get moving on the disco dance floor.

Bentleys' is a true locals' joint that just so happens, due to its location next to the Wheeler Opera House, to attract a good number of tourists. The bar resembles an old Victorian pub, and even includes an old bank counter imported from England functioning as a bar. You can choose from an array of typical American pub fare ranging from soups and salads to burgers and nachos. But if you are feeling more civilized, the menu offers an interesting selection of entrees including shrimp stir fry and Ruby Trout. The bar has one of the best beer lists in town.
