Restaurant Jamin has undergone many changes since the departure of venerated chef Joël Robuchon, but new owner and prolific restaurateur Alain Pras is proving that not all change is for the worse. While Jamin is certainly not the three Michelin star powerhouse it was in the mid-80s, chef David Legrand has invigorated the location with thoughtful and meticulously prepared courses that enhance traditional French fare with truly modern twists. Crisp roasted lamb with carrots and cumin make a perfect followup to the foie gras served (in gigantic portions) with mango chutney and country toast. The wine and dessert lists are certainly worth perusing, along with the exquisite-yet-brief cheese list. Masterfully understated African decor dotting the red, gold and wooden interior flourishes provide the perfect surroundings for an excellently executed meal.
