Over-priced for what they offered. Drinks were too small. They were much better about 5 years ago. Only the strong survive, and they weren't strong enough.

The table was rickety and too small. We should have left right away, but we were with a friend who was leaving town the next day, and we didn't want to lose time. I ordered a seafood stew in a tomato-coconut broth; my partner ordered...More

Stopped by for a late night drinks and snacks with friends. The waiter was a stereotype of a French server, if you know what I mean (and he appeared to be French). But, it made me feel like I was in Paris. The hostess was...More

Small restaurant on the border of LES and Chinatown. Menu is a mix of mostly North African and Brazilian selections. The Picanha was nicely cooked but under-seasoned. The couscous was fairly good. Wines were ok but nothing really stood out.

Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
