Cuisine Contemporary

More than $75

Though it is housed in a charming Victorian that dates back to the 1890s, the food at Chez TJ is thoroughly modern, incorporating culinary innovation into its takes on classic French cuisine. The low lighting, quietly elegant décor, and professional service makes this bijou the perfect choice for a dose of romance. Irrespective of the full dégustation menu or a slightly smaller prix-fixe, you will likely encounter novel ingredients and inventive techniques. Picture a rich yet very tender filet of antelope, or pine nut tuile and emulsified lobster stock garnishing a poached lobster tail and claw, only to find your palate utterly invigorated. That's not to say this fine maison can't handle the standards: duck breast is seared to a nice medium-rare and sided by tender confit, while tuna tartare gets a twist from wasabi, caviar, and arugula cream. The wine list is minimal, but a versed staff will happily educate diners on the perfect pairing. Local couples celebrating milestones are visible throughout the dining room, warmed by the occasion into trading their last bites of devil's food cake with chocolate caramel sauce, or Greek yogurt panna cotta with strawberries and lavender.
