    You’ll find pickled onions on your burger and foie gras in your profiterole, but also some killer fried green tomatoes on your pork belly and a really good chicken-under-a-brick. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    If I had $10 left to my name I'd come here for the bacon waffle and then take my chances with the world.

    Late night and limited-edition burgers are so popular! Gabriel Rucker, of Le Pigeon, only serves ten burgers a night. You can order one in advance when you make a reservation.

    They serve the catch of the day garnished with bottarga. You won't get the same umami flavor any other way. Its hard to find and worth it!

    The duck with hummus was the best thing we had here, and the hazelnut cake with rhubarb was the best dessert. The foie gras profiterole was only okay.

    Do the chef's tasting or do the burger. Anything else just doesn't do it justice.

    Great burger...pickled onions are perfect on it. Mashed potatoes with the beef is a new addition and a great one. Summer of Riesling is a good deal. All three are tasty.
