Need a good restaurant on GRAND STREET - URGENT!
L'Ecole, the restaurant of the French Culinary Institute. It is on the corner of Grand and B'way.
Great food, very reasonable (actually, it is a steal - there is a prix fixe menu between $25- $30), decent wine list, great service (it is for a grade, after all). Accessible by subway, cab and a parking lot (not free) across the street.
The potato pancake and smoked salmon (they smoke their own) appetizer is amazing - as is the creme brulee for dessert....mmmmmm....
