Stopped here one morning for a quick French breakfast. Don't know much about French food but I am in love with the croissants here. I thought they were delicious, comparable to Balthazar but less busy.
Summary How can a small, blue sign tempt you inside a narrow door? Follow the crowd filing inside! Surprisingly pricey, stuffy (literally and figuratively) and busy. The food, ambiance and service all seem to blend into an almost indistinguishably “gooey” mélange. Atmosphere and Service You will have more space to spread out and relax on a subway car. A booth...

We had dinner there in April. Restaurant was very busy, but waiters handled load well. We liked risotto and zucchini lasagna. Calf liver dish was not so great. After reading another review will go back and try quenelle during our net visit to NYC.

I had a soup and a sandwich. The cauiliflower soup was simply devine. With deep fried chorizo strips to give it a sense of definition.... More
We were walking down 5th Avenue during the Veterans' Day Parade and stopped in to the BB. It is a small place but we were very pleasantly surprised at the excellent food. We all had different versions of the soup and sandwich lunch and all enjoyed our food. I highly recommend it. Good value as well.
I visited Bar Breton for lunch as part of a week-long culinary experience/tour. Our guide knew the chef/owner of Bar Breton, which may have been why we got such personal treatment by the owner - Chef Cyril Renaud. The chef started us with 2 amuse bouches each - his crepe version of a croque monsieur (like a grilled ham and... More
