Tucked amid brownstones in the Sutton Place The Gallic charm begins the moment the accented wait staff greets you in this picturesque three story townhouse, nothing could seem more urban or more French. Owner-chef Pascal Petiteau specializes in signature Gallic classics at Bistro Vendôme, and he has gained a reputation for moules-frites, available here in five variations. This is where you'll taste the classics as they were meant to be: escargot bathed in a rich and fragant parsley and garlic-butter sauce, to mussels Provencale with crispy French fries; tailed by floating islands of meringue in creme anglaise with toasted almonds. On warm summer nights ask for a table on the terrace. Burgers are not too shabby at $22, served at the bar.
