Where I Go Out

At My Venues

"The food at Lacroix is exquisite, but I like to take the simple route sometimes, and this omelette is the way to go. It's so fluffy and very creamy. If I’m feeling a bit fancy, I’ll fill the omelette with crème fraîche and salmon. If I’m just looking for something really hearty and satisfying, I’ll ask for bacon and cheddar cheese."
Tasting menu
Tasting menu
"One of the finer things in life, this 12 to 15-course feast from my old stomping grounds is tailored to each diner. Think fish crudo and foie gras, all served as you sit in the middle of the kitchen."
Sunday brunch
Sunday brunch
"This is a longtime, New Year's Day tradition for our family. Chef Jon and his staff are always offering a unique experience during brunch. The menu changes often, but the selection of cold salads, raw bar, hot stations in the kitchen, and chocolate fountain offerings are just perfect. Champagne is required!"
Black garlic octopus
"Lacroix’s relaxed yet refined ambiance, paired with such inspired, playful, and edgy food, gives you such an exciting and special feeling when you eat there. I swear I got goosebumps as I savored the perfectly seared octopus with black garlic, smoked ricotta, miatake, and heirloom tomatoes. It was a sweet, salty, smokey, fresh, crispy, and creamy harmony in each bite."
