Foursquare Tips

  • A classic French bistro, this is a great place for an upscale and classy meal - and a cocktail or glass of champagne.
  • Restaurante con decoracin moderna y ambiente joven,su cocina es fusin de sabores franceses y latinos. Muy recomendable el Brunch del domingo. Ha salido varias veces en la serie "Sexo en Nueva York".
  • Food was decent but the crepes are a sacrilege to any French person.
  • The filet mignon is superb on the restaurant week menu. The appetizers are good too.
  • A spiral staircase separates this massive below-street-level space from Fifth Avenue. Duck in for the calm and stay for classic French salads, soups, eggs, and a flute of something sparkling.
  • Great place - the bouillabaisse was as good as in France. Meat was well cooked and tender. Try the macaron as desert!
  • Julian, the executive chef is amazing!
  • Awesome subterranean space for after work drinks
  • get the brunch buffet.
  • Had the Monday lobster night menu & the restaurant week menu. The food was really just ok - Duck breast was ok. Steak was ok. Lobster was ok. Service was A+.
  • Everything's good but overall a forgettable meal
  • Beautiful space. I highly recommend the filet mignon , goat cheese fritters, and crab cake! so so so good
  • The wild Scottish salmon and polenta was enough to fill me up. Salmon wasn't dry and the polenta was a big bowl
  • Best buffet brunch ever
  • The fried chicken Cobb is beautifully presented and delicious enough to obsess about
  • Excellent brunch buffet. Great atmosphere
  • Everything
  • Champagne flutes and two orders of croquettes. Done and done.
  • Sunday brunch buffet is an interesting alternative to a normal brunch experience. Desserts are excellent!
