New Feature!



This timeless French bistro has sat on a commercial stretch of SoHo's main drag for over 30 years, but it wears its age well, n'est-ce pas? Its picture-perfect, candlelit interiors surround an impressive art collection (Why, that is an original Martin Schreiber print! Bien sur!) including one larger than life, redheaded nude who some patrons liken to Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York. But none of that exterior beauty can compete with the inviting menu of Parisian brasserie favorites. A convivial crowd of up-and-coming models, elderly neighborhood regulars and the sort of women who look like they work in galleries happily convene for hearty glasses of Gamay and perfectly prepared steak au poivre.
