A nice spot to relax over bistro treats, from burgers to moule. Service is good, the atmosphere is pleasant, and the sound level is generally conducive to conversation.

French it isn't, contrary to its street sign which claims “A French Bistro”. Calling a place with a French name and describing it as “French bistro” does not make it one: you need food, wines and service to support such claims. The Steak Salad was...More

Bistro Chat Noir is a hidden gem located within an elegant, street-level townhouse in the heart of New York City's fashionable upper east side. The menu's extraordinary continental cuisine offers a subtle nod to the owner's French and North Carolinian roots. Guests may dine alfresco on our covered terrace or step inside and feel as if they have time-traveled to a fine Parisian cafe. Terrace is pet friendly. Bon appetit!
