French cuisine in Brooklyn?
Try Patois in Carroll Garden (255 Smith St., between
DeGraw & Douglas Streets - take the F train to Carroll
Street stop). It is a GREAT French bistro; wonderful
food, great atmosphere, a nice (and not terribly
marked-up) wine list. There's a tented area in the
back that you can relax in while waiting for a table;
you can start on the wine back there if you want.
Can't say enough good stuff about this place.

Patois has many supporters and detractors. Besides the
cultural tourists who bug me (I live around the corner
from the restau), others have had bad experiences
there. Do a search on this site for the word before
going so you know what the issues are. And that's
enough about that old conflama.
