The owners got the inspiration for this fashionable restaurant during a visit to New York and the innovative French restaurant Bouley. L'O de l'Hâ is on a narrow cobbled street whose name commemorates a long-gone medieval prison. Antique masonry, roughly textured plaster, and polished concrete decorate both fashionable dining rooms. Menu items are innovative and intriguing. Examples include crabmeat lasagna with coconut flakes; brandade of sweet potatoes with sweet peppers; large Dover sole with spinach, walnuts, and chanterelles; and braised lamb chops with tomato marmalade. From Thursday to Saturday, a DJ spins disco from 8 until around 11pm.
