Pricey, cramped, and really for take-out (although there are a couple tables to stand at and eat), but so spectacular. Cold food bar, making sandwiches, salads, and fresh sushi. Hot food bar, making hot sandwiches and soups. Oyster bar, serving a selection of raw oysters. Deli counter, serving cheeses and housemade pates and sausages. And, of course, the patisserie/viennoiserie, making pastries, cookies, cakes, etc. They have a great banh mi (made with their housemade thai sausage and pate), a beautiful nicoise salad featuring seared sushi-grade tuna, and the best french onion soup I've ever had. The pastries are amazing. Great coffee eclairs, perfect gold-leaf topped chocolate mousse cakes, rum-soaked brioche filled with chantilly cream. Look for the seasonal varieties. A recently offered yuzu meringue tart was so good I don't think I can eat lemon meringue pie again.
