One of my favorites.


Great intimate French restaurant.  The decor is beautiful, you'll spend a good portion of your meal looking at all the vintage french posters adorned on the walls.  In the background you'll hear the sounds of Edith Piaf and Monique Serf, a nice touch that makes you fell as if you are in an old Parisian bistro.  Delicious food and wine with a happy hour from 1-7,  great for early birds like myself!  Quite inexpensive for French cuisine in NYC.  It wouldn't be French cuisine without an appetizer of escargot.  They are served in a traditional garlic parsley butter and simply melt in your mouth.  My favorite dish the the Canard Roti.  The chef roasts the duck to perfection and it is served with a delicious grand marnier sauce and wild rice.  The selection of souffles is to die for.  These must be ordered when you order your entree so I advise you order and leave room for dessert - you won't regret it.  My recommendation is the praline souffle.
