Fodor's Review

Food-media darling, chef Andrew Carmellini (of Locanda Verde, Bar Primi, and the Dutch) goes Gallic here. After nearly a decade of Italian dominance on the Big Apple restaurant scene, French is back in vogue again, and Lafayette is a return to Carmellini's roots: the kitchens of his mentor, the great Daniel Boulud. There's no culinary trickery happening here, just straightforward and very satisfying bistro fare. Creamy duck-confit-spiked pumpkin risotto, a silky beef tartare, and steak frites are all excellent. So is the people-watching at this hip spot.
