Time Out NY Just follow the blue-hairs and in-the-know gay men to this charming Village refuge, where if you"re lucky enough to become a regular, the chef will greet you by name and design your own off-menu meal. Show tunes and framed Brassai photos of 1930s Paris set the mood for classic bistro fare prepared with enough flair and innovation (some dishes get Asian tweaks) to keep fans baying for nearly 30 years. A generous country-style pâté served with the requisite accoutrements holds its own against bavette frites{/I}, beautifully charred marinated skirt steak set off nicely by sweet caramelized shallots and perfect shoestring fries. But don"t take our word for it, take the word of the matinee-dashing ladies who, after happily cleaning their plates, averred, "There are damn few places left like this."
