Montrachet is as much a stage for gregarious owner and chef Thierry Galichet as anything else. He commands the dining room, dispensing wine and advice with equal aplomb. On the plate, the signature crab soufflé sits puffed and proud, blanketed in cream sauce and bubbling Gruyère. Galichet's annual research trips to France mean the restaurant's wine list is rich with hand-picked Bordeaux and its namesake Burgundy, all there to complement a menu of classics. Carefully seared scallops sit well with pesto risotto, while filet de boeuf is served up simply and happily with frites and salade. To finish, the crêpes Suzette and crème brûlée lay strong claim to being the best in town. Montrachet's dinner services are weekdays-only, and patrons cram the two sittings nightly; book the second if you like to linger and enjoy your virtual jaunt to France in a fittingly unhurried manner. Time for a second bottle? Mais oui.
