Gautreau’s biggest draw is their garden, which is the perfect atmosphere for a sort-of fancy dinner. Their menu is just as appealing, with its combo of French bistro dishes and food that takes inspiration from all over the world. You’ll find asado lamb ribs with arepas, red snapper with Chinese egg noodles, and a good ol’ plate of roast chicken, haricots verts, and mashed potatoes. We’d also like to pass a law that makes it illegal to come here without trying their caramelized banana split served with warm banana bread, butterscotch, and chocolate sauce—it’s the restaurant’s most iconic dessert and has been on the menu for years. Just know you’ll definitely need a reservation to eat here.
