This strikingly attractive establishment, located near Tiger City behind the ChaoFu Road Hakka Restaurant, does triple duty as a fine restaurant, teatime dessert-and-drink place, and swanky lounge-style nightspot. This place is designed to please epicures of all sorts, offering six high-end steaks--from the U.S. Rib Eye (NT$600) to the Dry Aged Steak (NT$4,200)--plus French-style pastries, handmade chocolates, a big selection of rare whiskies (Irish, Speyside, Islay, East and Northern Plateaus, Skye, etc.), wines, draft German Licher Weizen beer (500cc NT$300), and 15 sorbets/gelatos, with flavors ranging from Mango & Jasmine to Green Apple Celery. --By Douglas Habecker, translated by Naomi Lai

A. From the outside, Cherche Midi resembles a big, modern European villa, complete with chimney, large grassy "backyard" (with some cushy chairs), and a still-uncompleted upstairs loft area designed as a special space for savoring the whiskies and other epicurean delights offered here.

B. All meal sets include a salad, like the fruit/vegetable salad (pictured) served with a nice mint dressing, plus a soup choice, such as the pleasantly-spicy Vegetable Beef Soup (pictured), small glass of plum vinegar drink, a side-dish selection (like Blue Diamond Shrimp & Pan-Fried Salmon), seasonal vegetables, main course choice, dessert, and drink choice.

Cherche MidiC. The spacious high-ceilinged interior is surrounded by glass walls, framed by thick, rough-wood beams, and includes marble tables, colorful cushy seats and sofa areas. During popular evening hours it looks even more romantic, with candlelit tables and nice lighting.
