Enjoy Executive Chef Greg Bigger’s cuisine rooted in French culture showcasing products from local and regional farmers at Cafe des Architectes.  The restaurant is located in the fashionable Gold Coast neighborhood and is a modern restaurant with dramatic appointments created by interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon.
Vibrant colors, overstuffed chairs, sprawling banquettes and lamps that employ upside-down toques as lamp shades grab your attention. The carefully crafted interior’s design serves as the perfect landscape for the approachable cuisine crafted from ingredients procured from local farmers.
