Want something a bit more upscale for this week's family get-together? Fancy a certain je ne sais quoi? Make reservations at La Note Provencal (seriously, make the reservation) and choose from a variety of authentic French offerings. A party of four can easily share the charcuterie and cheese plates or the Corbeille De Pain, a basket of assorted baked-goods that comes with a tart jam and creamy house butter. If you don't feel like sharing and are dining past 6 p.m., go for the grilled rosemary marinated chicken or ask the knowledgeable wait staffer for a recommendation — they love talking about the dishes. The chefs at La Note also get bonus points for their excellent plating techniques, which will surely inspire an Instagram post or two.
