At Deuxave, a thick marble bar curves gracefully where the windows bow. You get a lot of attention and high-quality stemware, flatware, and linens. Duck liver pate, with its garnish of vanilla-poached pears, is silky and nicely set off by the generous 2009 Falesco Umbria sangiovese. Even the butter is perfect: a glorious little nubbin of French Echire. This elegant restaurant has a Michelin-star quality.  — Sheryl Julian and Stephen Meuse
