It's France-on-the-Hudson at this village hot spot with crimson walls, lipstick-hue banquettes, and Edith Piaf on the stereo. Although purists might claim the fare is more bistro than brasserie, the extensive menu and wine lists give you many choices. Expertly executed classics range from croque monsieur (egg batter–dipped ham-and-cheese sandwich) to steak au poivre with cognac-and-cream dressing. The rum-infused crème brûlée and cloud-light profiteroles have
gained a following.
