Frederic Kieffer

Artisan, Southport, CT, and l’escale, Greenwich, CT

Though just a short jaunt from New York City, Greenwich’s l’escale restaurant feels like a trip to the Côte d’Azur, thanks to the cuisine of Frederic Kieffer. Join this native French chef when he presents an alluring menu of dishes from l’escale and Artisan, his New England tavern.
