For a little ooh-la-la
From brunch, lunch and dinner to a fixed-price menu, this bang-up-to-date bistro serves modern French cuisine with a dash of new-age American flair. Start with escargots then indulge in steak frites or lemon sole meuniere followed by a classic crème brulee. Signature cocktails sit alongside a range of international beers and fine French wines, ready to be sipped at the cosy bar in an intimately romantic Parisian-style atmosphere.

Puritan & Company
Farm-to-table freshness
Nurturing a new twist on New England cuisine, chef and owner Will Gilson has already earned award nominations for Puritan & Company despite the restaurant being open for less than two years. With an ever-changing menu incorporating seasonal, local ingredients, mains range from roasted duck Muscovy to seared skate wing. Try the gougères to start – puffy pastries filled with cheddar mornay, or come for Sunday Brunch - a high-end take on fry-up favourites accompanied by bellinis.

Veggie (and carnivore!) heaven
Jaw-droppingly delicious dishes are created in the open kitchen at Oleana, a Turkish-influenced Mediterranean-style venue. Inventive vegetarian dishes and tasting menus attract meat-eaters and veggies alike, with offerings such as chickpea crêpes, lamb steaks and fava bean moussaka. Octopus with crispy Brussels sprouts is another speciality, while dessert is always a winner – save some space for the baked Alaska or cocoa-rose ice cream with a date-rose truffle. Unforgettable.
