For a hotel restaurant, La Riviera is surprisingly chic. Red glasses, zebra print chairs, and white drapes and fixtures speak to its modernity, a style that is also reflected in its dishes. Executive Chef Pierre Sudre, who hails from a small village in the south of France, is as adept at creating a lobster bisque with Pernod ($9) as sea scallops pan-seared and served with saffron risotto, balsamic glaze, snow peas, and roasted red pepper coulis ($26). Do yourself a favor, and don't forget to order wine. The list comprises an assortment of by-the-glass options, ranging from $9 Merlots, Chardonnays, and Cabernet Sauvignons to $23 reds. Fortunately for you oenophiles, La Riviera also hosts regularly scheduled wine-pairing dinners (at press time they were being held the fourth Thursday of each month). The restaurant's breakfast menu serves as inspiration to crawl out of bed no matter how hungover; the thought of orange-blossom French toast ($12), Nutella crêpes with strawberries ($13), eggs Benedict with smoked salmon, spinach, and hollandaise sauce ($15), and a cup of Lavazza is enough to make nearly anyone rise and shine.
