French Restaurant
$$$
“Trendy upscale classic French Brassiere in the area. Cozy. Usually a wait if no reservation (so expect to go and put your name in and come back in an hour when no reservation). If never been, it’s a must go simply because it’s a “New York establishment” when it comes to local restaurants here. Every New Yorker whose anyone has dinned here at some point. Period. At least anyone whose been social and knows their restaurants. Tables can be made in advance on the OpenTable app. Also a very cute spot for dinner (will definitely be a wait or need a reservation but can put name down). I always go here with my mom when she visits me in New York usually for dinner (But I’ve also been here with friends, and on dates in the past)! They have great salads, AMAZING fries, french onion soup is on point here, Bronzino is great, great oysters, amazing filet minon and steak (Although I really have cut out most red meat in my life it is very good here from what remember!)... great pancakes for brunch and Eggs Benedict/ eggs Florentine. Pretty much everything here is amazing, it’s not a crazy priced restaurant for New York but it’s also not inexpensive so just check the menu online... New york is Expensive in general but most of the restaurants I’m recommending are worth your money (If you’re going to spend your money on a meal New York City and Paris are the places to do it)!!! ”
