Fodor's Review

It may not be as hard to get in as it was back in 2003, when Keith McNally first opened this sceney hangout on the Lower East Side, but it still has the allure, with excellent bistro fare, sexy cocktails, and the kind of atmosphere that is as comfortable for celebrities as for parents with strollers. This is vintage Parisian à la McNally: verdigris mirrored panels, forever-in-style subway tiles, a tin ceiling, and a checkered floor, while Cuban sandwiches and steak frites reveal a steady hand in the kitchen. This is also the place for a late-night bite, since the kitchen is open until midnight every night (until 3 am Friday and Saturday). Breakfast is served weekdays until 4 pm, with brunch on weekends.
