Foursquare Tips

  • Amazing French pastries, breads and baked goods, great atmosphere and solid lunch/brunch options including this brisket burger w/ crispy fries. Prices aren't low but the experience lives up to them.
  • I'm not mad that I paid $5 for the butterscotch coffee eclair. I'm mad that I now need to rebudget my finances so that I can afford to buy one of these everyday until the day I die
  • Andrew Carmellini's all-day French bistro and bakery.
  • As far as $14 cocktails go, the saisonniere is really quite special. Oysters, asparagus, and octopus as starters! Steak frites = real deal. Finish with the chocolate-almond torte and then die happy.
  • Good lord order the crab terrine and butter lettuce and do your best to avoid the sad customers from the upper east side (or worse??) who are dressed like they're going sailing.
  • It's hard to screw up a rotisserie chicken salad, but it's even harder to make it truly outstanding. Order the rotisserie chicken salad.
  • NoHo's answer to Balthazar.
  • The brunch menu includes many of the standout dishes from the breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus. You can get a foie gras terrine, salads, soups, omelettes, steak frites, and tripes Bourguignon.
  • the mercurey red. maine crab a la nage. duck au poivre.
  • Black Fettuccine should without a doubt be part of your meal.
  • Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. This Grand Cafe brings a little Paris to NYC. Solid deliciousness. -foodie magician :)
  • The atmosphere, decor, service and food are fantastic! I highly recommend the Grilled Asparagus and Frise Salad to start and the Duck as an entree. Pastas good, too. Big wine selection. #nyceats
  • Wonderful casual space where the classics are done (mostly) right. The indifferent service needs work.
  • Really beautiful space. For brunch I recommend the soft scramble. It comes in a croissant bread bowl!
  • The Rive Gauche at the bar is absolutely delicious. Refreshing and light, contrasted by a bit of basil, pepper & rhubarb.
  • One of our Food & Drink 2014 Readers Choice winners! Try Lafayettes egg Lafayette, scallop cru, baked oysters with seaweed butter and bread crumbs, spaghetti nicoise, or mango-lime parfait.
  • The wifi password is croissant & the lamb sandwich is amazing
  • Never go here for dinner, but always go here for brunch. It's almost like they switch chefs at 4pm.
  • Brisket Burger. Just do it.
  • The seats by the window of the bakery are great for low key people watching. Get a cup of coffee (their own Stumptown blend) and have it to stay.
