The Overview

Jakartans don't need to travel to Paris for beautifully turned-out confit de canard and steak frites. Instead, they come to Bistro Baron, whose Indonesian owner Anna Bambang consulted celebrity chef Emmanuel Stroobant to ensure authenticity. Royal blue walls set off red-leather banquettes reminiscent of St. Germain's Café de Flore, while a rocket-shaped Elektra coffee machine transforms Javanese beans into smooth café au lait. Diners here are exacting and the dishes deliver the goods: silky triangles of foie gras evaporate on the tongue and a round of gruyère adds an exquisite savoriness to the caramelized onion soup beneath. For proof that food and drink are the best medicine, try the Penicillin, made of Scotch, house-made ginger syrup and lemon squeeze.
