Looking for a good place for lunch before a matinee try Brasserie Cognac. The food is good and ideally located.

Stopped off for a lunch on our last day in NYC, excellent quiche and fries. The service was excellent, plenty of time to decide and the choice was very good. The restrooms were also very clean and spotless.

Très bon! Didn’t expect this to be so nice. Soupe à l’onion magnifique. All else noteworthy. Good composed salads. Tables not too close together so that’s great too. Get the cheese puffs.

We ate dinner here last night in New York before heading home to Oslo, Norway. We were given a table in the quiet section, on our request. We didn’t fancy eating dinner and watching tennis at the same time. The waiters did their job, but...More
