Eurocentrism is the practice, conscious or otherwise, of placing emphasis on European (and, generally, Western) concerns, culture and values at the expense of those of other cultures. ...

Palme d'Or What once used to be an uber stuffy restaurant suitable for the regal Biltmore Hotel has tried to hippify itself, if you will, by adopting a modernized French menu conducive to chic, albeit, less formal dining.
While I haven't exactly seen the hipsters flocking here, at least the menu is more fun than before, because you are allowed to custom design your own menu, choosing from over 20 dishes which you are encouraged to mix and match.
