Although booked a late table (9:30) and everyone else was drinking their coffees when we arrived they were very welcoming. Had hoped to sit on the pavement as it was a lovely, hot summers evening (it looked perfect on their website) but switched to inside table as 2nd Avenue is very busy, therefore noisy and full of fumes with the...

This was my first visit to this long-established restaurant, recommended by my hotel (the excellent Hotel Elysée). The meal was brunch and I was offered the choice for my scrambled eggs - unusual in the US - for hard, medium or soft. The came soft, and delicious, quite a good test for a kitchen.

To start, I'd like to thank the proprietor, Gérard, who is a kind, competent gentleman. It was his thoughtful, laid-back demeanor that ultimately led to our choosing his restaurant to host a party for 35 of us. The staff was clearly hard working, and very pleasantly accommodating to our needs. They also made sure our drinks were full. The prix... More

Rustic old french interior Wine: cote de nuits (nice balance though relatively young) Young lettuce salad (very simply made, a salad like your mother did with fresh crispy salad, chopped echalottes and a plain vinegrette) Roasted pork: Well cooked tender meat Little mushrooms with a vinegar boost Very good diced potatoes Calvados: honest Overall a simple hearthy french food

A most delectable meal on our last night in NYC. Started with the French Onion Soup which was one of the best I've ever tried. A great starter would be the Planche Campagnarde consisting of Homemade Pate, Smoked Duck Breast , Dry Sausage, Chicken Liver Mousse, Toasted Country Bread, Condiments. It was Delicious. Servers were attentive but not obtrusive. Great... More

Everything in the menu is appealing. Lots of classics, plus some unusual dishes (for NYC) like sautéed veal liver. Very friendly and capable staff and reasonable prices.

The decor is authentic, not upscale, but charming. The food is divine. The onion soup is the absolute best that I have ever had; it is not just a good rendition of onion soup, is worthy of five stars. The quiche of the day had oyster mushrooms and was what a quiche should be: moist and good tasting with a... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
