“French Dining, Redefined,” is a slogan that announces the contemporary and re-inventive touch that Le Privé brings to traditional French dining. For one, the owners are Guyanese and Haitian, which is why the food has been described as “Haitian accented French cuisine” with fork-tender meats, rich flavors that mesh easily, and hints of African diasporic influences. The interior is decorated with true French flair— lined with dainty bistro chairs, wooden tables, elegant chandeliers, and a warm red ceiling— and as soon as you walk in, you’ll get the experience of a true Parisian brasserie. Plates are beautifully presented with an eye for detail but not fussy, making patrons feel cozy and still sophisticated. We recommend the steak frite, filet mignon, the chef’s charcuterie, and for dessert, a crème brûlée that will blow your mind. If you’re looking for a good drink, ask for the Je m’en fou cocktail.
