Gabrielle, the signature restaurant of new King Street hotel Hotel Bennett, is formal and refined, with white tablecloths, upholstered chairs, and Swarovski-laden netting draped from the ceiling. There are also a small cluster of tables outside offering superlative views of Marion Square, but note that sitting out there is the equivalent of wearing a cloak of invisibility. Three cheers for the duck a l’orange, a testimony to the heights of which the kitchen is capable. Beautifully presented, the delectable, crisp skin on the bird is perfection. Same goes for the tender meat. Plated with orange sections and three tourneed, roasted turnips, this was the unexpected highlight of the meal. My dining companion may have summed it up best, “They must have beat that bird before they killed it, because that is some tender flesh.” —Vanessa Wolf (Dish, Summer 2019)
