Sink into the soft grey banquettes at this sunny, unpretentious neighborhood bistro and treat yourself to pleasingly straightforward classics like frisée salad aux lardons, three-egg omelettes, or coriander-crusted Long Island duck breast. Details like cute French café chairs, framed prints of pressed ferns, and a cluttered bar add a dash of Euro-boho charm. The restaurant is small, and the fact that it is divided in two rooms gives it a cozy, living room-like feel.
The usual funky, well-read West Village crowd, which may include a smattering of celebs.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
It’s casual. We’d roll up for brunch in a pair of well-loved jeans and our favorite cashmere cardi.

WHY WE LIKE IT
It’s the perfect neighborhood spot: comfortable, charming, and with a great menu of bistro classics. We like to come for a chatty brunch or light dinner with friends.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
It gets really, really crowded at weekend brunch.
GOOD TO KNOW
