Chef Felipe Milanes, formerly executive chef at nearby Café of Love, heads the kitchen at this bistro serving American and French fare. Dishes to try: pan-roasted salmon with French green lentils; half-chicken in a citrus/red-wine sauce, grilled Berkshire pork loin, and surf ’n turf pappardelle. F.A.B. is open Mon to Fri for breakfast, Mon to Sat for lunch (homemade crêpes!), and every day for dinner; brunch on Sun. Reservations suggested.
As the sexy, Showtime series is proving, Henry VIII is back! Make like that fabled Hank and tuck into F.A.B.’s Flintstonian haunch of slow-braised lamb shank with winey fig gastrique, biting Brussels sprouts, and lush goat-cheese polenta. It’s juicy, it’s brawny, and it’s just the thing for your next seduction.
