Fodor's Expert Review Nice Matin

$$$ Upper West Side French

If the Upper West Side and the French Riviera collided, it might look a little bit like Nice Matin. This is a longtime neighborhood favorite, particularly in warm-weather months, when regulars plant themselves at sidewalk tables and gawk at passersby while munching on Gallic fare like pan-roasted monkfish, garlicky mussels, and, of course, steak frites. The novel-size wine list boasts more than 2,000 bottles, so bring your reading glasses. Be sure to dress for the people-watching, particularly at the popular weekend brunch.
