La Cote d'Or/Bistro des Celestins is far from the only dual-personality restaurant. In fact, with more chefs turning to the tasting-menu concept, the trend toward two, two, two menus in one has been increasingly popular. Galileo's Roberto Donna has gone a step further, giving his establishment three faces -- though two are sufficient for this Eve.
