    Tribeca's Provençal eatery Plein Sud serves up delicious pancakes on its well-rounded, if pricey, breakfast menu.

    Food/Service ok. I just didn't understand what took so long to seat us in an empty restaurant. And I had a resy. Also they were out of half the items on the menu. It was only 7pm why is there no food!

    Ridiculously poor service. Hour wait to be served w/ restaurant half empty with nary an apology or comp in sight. Steer clear!

    Food was less than mediocre and the "service" was abhorrent. Place was empty and that should have been the tip off to "exit stage left". Waste of time and money. Never again.

    The kardashians stayed in the Smyth when they filmed their first NYC show. A lot of scenes were shot here.

    Amazing burger but a BLACK HOLE for cell reception. If you need wifi for a lunch or dinner meeting, sit in the front.

    The blueberry-lemon tart is made with fresh fruit. It will knock your socks off.

    At the helm are restauranteur Frederick Lesort and "Top Chef" contestant Ed Cotton, who are focusing on French cooking such as foie gras au torchon, served with brioche and seasonal preserves.

    I'd didn't have time for food, but I did have a Fraise & Basile frozen Leblon caipirinha, which was really refreshing!

    Amazing selection of French wines along with one of the best glasses of bourgogne rouge for twelve bucks I've had in a very long time. Waiters are very friendly and prompt as well.

    Sounds oddly non-French, but the burger with cheese is fab. The cheese is actually inside the beef patty and melted in a delightful way.

    There’s a full bar and you ought to use it. Have the pasta with merguez, charge it to your room, then head out into the New York night. Read more

    The menu focuses on French brasserie standards — charcuterie, croque monsieur and a steak au poivre with frites, for example — but also includes a few southern French dishes. Read more
