It should go without saying that in order to be great, a restaurant has to have it all: food, hospitality, atmosphere, value. The pieces must be working perfectly in sync, consistently, constantly. And then there are the little intangibles, the minuscule touches, dreamy things that vault a place from great to exquisite. St. Genevieve rises to this level. Its ethos is that of an all-day French buvette where you come to meet friends midday and never want to leave. The interior is all beveled mirrors, dreamy ivory bar, and golden light, impressive enough to evoke an admiring whistle. On the plate are ethereal takes on French classics both approachable and altogether novel. In the glass, lots and lots of bubbly wine. In your heart, love.
