Why We Go: Cindy Wolf and Tony Foreman have opened a restaurant for just about every fine dining mood, from the stylish Pazo to the more traditional Charleston. Petit Louis is the most laid back, allowing us to have a fine-dining experience without feeling tragically unhip or, you know, poor.
What We Eat: We've never been less than stunned by Petit Louis' fare, whether it's the brunch or a nice dinner. If the kitchen is offering one of it prix-fixe dinners revolving around a perfectly in-season item, get it. The cherry one still haunts our taste buds.
What We'd Change: There's not much to quibble about here, but the bar area is uncomfortably small, especially on weekend nights when patrons are stuck waiting for tables there.
