'Tis the season for chi-chi lunches



Maison & Jardin is such a sought-after, chi-chi dinner destination that it doesn't do lunch, except during the holidays, when more customers want to celebrate in a rarefied atmosphere. Through Dec. 23 only, it's open for lunch from 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. daily.

This is the one time of year when you can lunch on the Continental-with-a-French-glaze menu at relatively affordable prices. The surroundings are so plush that even the restrooms look like minisalons out of the pages of Art and Architecture.

The $19.50 fixed-price menu includes four courses. And between the stone crab cakes, smoked Norwegian salmon, escargot, paella, filet mignon and veal scallopini, you'll have a lot of decisions to make. As always, reservations are a good idea.
