If you think this place looks straight out of Paris, you're right. Nearly everything, from the zinc bar and the banquettes to the light fixtures and cinema posters, was shipped from a defunct café in the City of Light to this atmospheric downtown alley. Order a croque monsieur or niçoise salad at lunchtime. The francophone kitchen sends out even more French staples for dinner, like escargots, steak tartare, coquilles Saint-Jacques, and coq au vin. Grab a table outdoors
(heat lamps keep you warm on cool nights) and pretend you are at a Parisian sidewalk café. Stop by Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights starting at 7:30 pm to enjoy live jazz along with your meal.
