Laurel serves French-inspired, New American fare from Top Chef winner chef Nicholas Elmi. A la carte and chef’s tasting menus (with optional wine pairings) showcase dishes like black cod in truffle broth or roasted lamb neck with stinging nettles and wood ear mushrooms, as well as crowd-favorite dessert vanilla-fromage blanc panna cotta. This bistro features a simple, rustic interior marked by hanging lanterns, reclaimed wooden tables and tufted beige seating.
