Delightfully Enticing French Fare Jan 29, 2017
We have dined at Cafe Architectes 4 or 5 times over the past few years. Located in the lobby of The Sofitel Water Tower, it is both upscale and warm at the same time. The food has always been excellent, especially when we went there to celebrate my husband's birthday. The chef and staff knocked themselves out to give us a special meal. Since then it has been our choice for out of town guests as we know the food will please.

My favorite dish has been the pork belly and divers scallop. Very rich, but complex in the tastes. Whatever the salmon preparation is will also be superb.What's new is the fairly recent development of Chestnut Provisions, the in-house production of cheese and charcuterie. We've had the appetizer selection three times and it only gets better. Especially good are the creative jams and pickles served with the cheese and meat. Desserts are also complex with subtle flavors.

It is clear that the wait staff support Chef Biggers' goals and are proud of the food they serve.
