As a general rule of thumb, you should never go to new restaurants during their first couple weeks after opening. Cherche Midi is about a month into service which meant it was the perfect time to give it a try. Located in the old Pulino’s space, Cherche Midi is the perfect place to woo your date, or catch up with friends. From beginning to end, the service was impeccably accommodating. Cozy up to the bar and have Francois whip you up a famous concoction, masterfully created off the top of his head, or order from the expertly crafted menu. High notes from the evening include the steak tartar, roasted cauliflower, and cheese plate. The crowd is young and chic, and the air is unpretentious.
