We stumbled on Pigalle our first day in New York. It is on the N.E. corner of 48th Street and 8th Avenue. The restaurant has big windows so you can see right into the interior and the outside looks a little more glamorous than most other store fronts in the area. They have a large board outside which displays the menu and the specials of the day. Prices are good and the menu is varied and appetizing. When we stepped inside we felt transported from the noise and bustle of Manhatten to a cafe on a side street in Paris. The décor is French style, modern, and clean. Interesting knick-knacks and objet d'art are displayed around the interior, but are tasteful and do not overwhelm. There is a large bar with stools just inside the door which we utilized one night after seeing a show. Drinks were large, reasonably priced and the staff very friendly and chatty. We went back there to eat several times during our stay and found the food delicious and well presented. We would definitely recommend you pay them a visit during your stay in New York.

Authentic French food and atmosphere, minus the cigarette smoke of course. Fresh greens, never overdressed, decent & drinkable wines by the glass, perfect escargot and huge burgers. Love the room, and the servers are efficient and kind. We always come here after a show or later, as they are open til 11 and 11:30, depending on the night.

This stage-set authentic Parisian cafe next door to the Hilton Garden Inn on 8th at 48th St has a 3-6 happy hour with 1$ oysters, crab cakes, steak tatare and more at great prices. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that i didn't have a full dinner.

Group breakfast experience was less than stellar. Wait staff was wonderful. Pancakes and french toast were tasty - but not worth the price. Step out the front door and try some of the local favorites.
