It’s the holidays so how about getting out and sparkling? Start at downtown’s Le Petit Paris, which opened last fall in the historic El Dorado building. Taking full advantage of its glamorous beginnings as a hotel lobby, the impressive space boasts soaring ceilings, a grand double staircase leading to an elegant mezzanine level, two bars, a generous outdoor patio, and perfect lighting that makes the entire room glow. The extensive menu offers classic Parisian favorites and lighter items with a French twist. Start with escargot, seared foie gras with apples and Calvados, or tuna tartar and local tomatoes and burrata. Entrées include classics like crisp pan roasted magret duck breast alongside more luxurious presentations of roasted whole lobster with cognac, sole meuniere, and a dramatic pasta flambéed tableside in a carved out wheel of Parmigiano and served with a generous flourish of freshly shaved black Burgundy truffle. On Wednesday nights, live jazz starts at 7:30pm.
