Lafayette serves all three meals in a beautiful brasserie space: Copper pots hang in the kitchen, horseshoe-shaped booths are spacious and inviting, while the clean, fresh look of the bakery—with blue-and-white patterned floor tiles and lots of white marble—offsets the rusticity of the dining room. We like the shellfish platter and the oysters, along with the rotisserie chicken for two and an order of the fries. It’s also a great place to meet for breakfast, with simple, quality dishes that all have a French twist (two farm eggs any style with pommes de rôtisserie or smoked salmon benedict on brioche). The private wine cave has its own bar, which makes it ideal for office holiday parties.
