A classic French bistro tucked away right off of Long Island City’s main drag, this neighborhood favorite draws crowds all the way from Manhattan and Brooklyn with its menu of traditional Gallic favorites, like croque monsieur, steak frites, French onion soup, nicoise salad, homemade terrines and pates, escargot and changing daily specials (like braised veal breast with polenta).
