L'Ecole is a fun restaurant. It is run by culinary students. So it is always better to go at the end of a semester. I have been 5 or 6 times and the food has always been excellent and unique. It's a price fixe meal - either $25 or $35 and for that you get a full meal including appetizer and dessert. During the winter months you will definitely need to make a reservation. Expect to spend 2 or so hours here. Parking is fine. Not very children friendly - they do not even have high chairs. Get a baby sitter for this one. It will be worth it.
