This city may specialize in farm-to-table, but today there's new energy—and a wider range of culinary influences.

At Bistro Agnes, a stylish restaurant with a blue Turkish-tiled floor, the lunch menu is stocked with French-bistro classics like Nicoise salad, a burger (with aged cheddar, grilled onion, and truffle bordelaise) and fries, a velvety quiche (leeks, spinach, gruyere), a croque monsieur, steak frites, and mussels mariniere. At dinner, sole meuniere and beef bourguignon round things out. If you're able to save room for dessert, you'll be rewarded in profiteroles and Meyer lemon tarts.
