Description: Set on Park Avenue South, between 28th and 29th Streets, Brasserie Les Halles serves a collection of classic dishes from the finest brasseries in Paris. The speciality of the house is the French Cuts of Meats, simply char-grilled and served with award-winning French Fries. Les Halles' long list of various steaks comes from the in-house butcher. The French butchering technique looks for unique qualities in each cut, providing different tastes and textures in each type of steak. Les Halles buys Prime American beef, naturally tenderised by two weeks of wet aging. The beef is then dry aged in-house for 21 days at 36-degrees Fahrenheit to concentrate the flavours. The original plaster mouldings in the restaurant date from the early 1900's, when the building was erected to house a restaurant specialising in healthy foods. The most famous menu item at the time - a blend of fresh vegetable juice to order - was later licensed and bottled under the brand V8! The large menu is designed to accommodate all tastes, appetites and budgets, and free Wi-Fi internet access is available throughout.

Go there for lunch quite often. They have great steak, frites, and salad for very reasonable prices. The service is top notch, your water is never empty and never leave disappointed.

Best French Bistro value in NYC. The steak frite is a best buy and the french fries are one of the bests.

The only low point of the restaurant is the ambience (we found it too dark and loud). For the rest, it was perfect. Service was impeccable and the food was simple, but beautifully executed. It's a nice place for a family or even for a couple.

We went to this place only becausey wife really likes Bourdain's shows hehe

I must admit that it suprised me a lot for its food (i ordered a steak with "the famous" fries and some aspargus) and the service was perfect, my glass of water and my wine were never empty. The server came every time that I needed without having to call him or raising my arm (like he knew what I was thinking hehe).

The place was really crowded and dark (I think they could light it a little bit more), but all the mentioned above makes me want to come back again and again.

What a great surprise!!! This is the restaurant Anthony Boudain started in. Completely packed with the locals (not surprised-good sign). Anything with duck on the menu were to die for!!!!!!!!! Good recommendations with wine pairings. Little crammed but would go back!
