    This tucked-away East side bistro is well worth the trip for its romantic outdoor space, well-executed classic French cuisine, & reasonably-priced wine list. [Eater 38 Member]

    This no-frills brasserie perched in a remodeled 1930s bungalow serves authentic Gallic comfort food and (more importantly?) people-gawking until the early-morning hours. Read more

    The steak tartare is amazing. Dragon breath ensures you won't be making out with anybody afterwards.

    We know, we know, you'll never eat snails, but the sauce on the escargos is so outstanding that you'll forget you're eating a mollusk with only one foot.

    Pretty far on East Side, but worth it. Make a great Old Fashioned and spin only vinyl - very cool.

    Go for the wine, but avoid the cocktails. Shaken Sazaracs and Sidecars with lime juice have no place on a cocktail menu. The $5 house red is a great choice.
