French cuisine in Brooklyn?

I know this is a long shot . . . but does anyone know
of good French dining in Brooklyn? My wife and I like
French cuisine, but we don't like Manhattan prices.
There's La Boulliabaise on Atlantic Ave. in Brooklyn
Heights - very popular. And there's a place called
Bistro 36 on Joralemon St., in the same neighborhood.
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.
I've been asked to mention that a restaurant called Le
ZaZou 8303 3rd Ave 491-6618 will open thursday july 15,
and will serve French food.
Obviously, I've not tried it myself, this is not a
personal endorsement, etc etc
