    Went there once a while back, late night. Based on my experience, and talking to other people, stick with meat. I had lamb chops, if I recall correctly, and they were quite good.

    (Plus my wife and I were one table away from Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake.)

        Get the steak frites and escaregot. They are both top notch there.

          Thanks Sweatshirt...I did have the steak and the fries were great...especially with the peppercorn sauce...yummy...although I like escargots, I opted for the warm pear frisee salad with goat cheese...good also.

            The setak au poivre is excellent, and the oysters are quite fresh.

              My favorite ny restaurant. It does get loud later; they crank the music as the night goes on. Tarot card reader at top of stairs. Meryl S. there one time I was there....I've never had a bad meal there. Excellent. Great Ny local spot. You want to sit up front or the first room for the real experience. Once we sat in the very back back room and that was a drag....ambience was not half as good. Request a banquette right in the front bar if you like to people watch.
