At the historic, landmark Biltmore Hotel's top-end restaurant, the food is French — but it's far from traditional. Chef Philippe Ruiz, veteran of several Michelin-starred eateries in France and Switzerland, serves inventive, luxurious Caribbean and New Spanish-influenced nouvelle cuisine. And it's served in trendy — and tasty — appetizer-sized portions, so diners can assemble their own three-, four-, or five-course prix-fixe grazing dinners. Among the 28 choices, Maine lobster cappuccino (a layered bisque with a foamy crème fraîche head that looks like a latte but tastes like intense, rich essence of the sea); ethereal poached chicken dumplings, light as the best quenelles, with chestnut purée; spoons of sevruga caviar on whipped mousseline potatoes; a spicy lobster cake with fennel salad; and scrumptious asparagus beignets, their ends encased in crunchy Parmesan-flavored batter, with Dijonaise dipping sauce. The award-winning wine list is a veritable who's who of French vineyards (with other nations well represented too), and paired wine dinners are available.
