Benoit Review

Who needs to go to Paris when the world's most famous French chef, Alain Ducasse, can come to you? Ducasse imported his famous Right Bank bistro to the Big Apple in 2008 and it's been a hit with Gallic-loving eaters a hit ever since. The decor—cozy red velour banquettes and wall lamps illuminating each table—is plucked straight from the City of Light. So is the menu, which doesn't reinvent anything as much as it replicates. And that's okay, especially when the fennel-inflected loup de mer (also known as sea bass) or the tender roasted veal loin are so well executed. It's not exactly cheap for simple bisto fare. Then again, neither is a round-trip ticket to Paris.
