     I recently had a delicious lunch at Bistronomics, a cozy restaurant in the Rush Street area, owned by stellar French chef Martial Noguier who used to helm the Pump Room kitchen when I was there. This  makes a wonderful addition to the restaurant choices in walking distance of Water Tower Place. A Chioggia Beet Salad with white truffle oil, hazelnut vinaigrette and capriole goat cheese was the perfect starter along with a cauliflower veloute with brioche croutons, creme fraiche and shavings of Pleasant Ridge cheese. The “everyday brunch” selections have a French flair, but Noguier tips his beret to American cuisine and Chicago in particular. The Gold Coast salad boasts ingredients of lobster, fennel, French beans and beets. Housemade gnocchis, raviolis and pastas lend a whiff of Italian cuisine.

Chocolate hazelnut bars capped the meal with their bittersweet chocolate mousse, crispy praline and orange sauce. Bistronomics has cheese flights from “less than 300 miles” and “more than 300 miles” if you’re in the mood for a dairy dessert. I can’t wait to go back for a dinner of filet of beef au poivre with carmelized endives and cognac sauce with a white bean cassoulet side. Zut, alors!
