    Great choice if Red Rooster is too crowded. And even if not, still a great choice! Steak Frites were excellent. Noisy crowd but still can have good conversation.

    Classique Cheeseburger w/Fries is excellent! So too is Scrambled eggs w/smoked salmon. Bread for the table with olive oil/balsamic is also great.

    Don't order the "Oeufs a la Coque". The waiter said they haven't made it in months, and they forgot how to make it.

    At least during our visit, the service was abysmal, and the food wasn't any better. The burger was a cold, dry, and overcooked hunk of meat. Read more

    $14 for soup or salad + burger, sandwich, or mussels. Def go with a friend and share 2 different entrees & the French onion soup.

    For authentic cuisine invoking the Parisian cross-culture of the Harlem Renaissance, look no further than the croque madame and mousse at this cocktail bar and restaurant.

    $14 for a carafe of mimosa, sangria or Bloody Mary can't beat. If you stay for dessert try the blueberry tart.

    Steer clear of the Kobe burger and go for the regular, instead -- it's the best we've found in Harlem.

    We're big fans of the classic dishes at this elegant French bistro. Consider their nightly specials or the bountiful $25 Sunday prix fixe, and make sure to check out the killer brunch menu.

    The cafe here is the place to be "scene" as the fashionable set struts up Lenox. Happy hour packs them in. But speaking French gets you noticed. Mussels & Salmon Tartare are tops. Portions fluctuate.

    If you're seeking a healthy approach have the salmon burger sans bread with spinach on the side.

    Based on my one experience, it was not representative of French food. Notwithstanding, the food and ambience combined made it a nice evening.

    I also must add I ordered Merlot. It came was watered down house wine. They admitted they ran out of merlot. They replaced it with a nice Cab..just upsetting to see a wonderful place going slowly down
