Casual french in the theatre district.

Any suggestions for a casual french bistro in the theatre district/clinton/hell's kitchen area that is not completely overpriced? I would love to find a sweet place that is a bit more authentic and not so touristy.

        It was supposed to because of a lease battle, which they ultimately won. So, not closing.

          I hadn't heard that-last I heard they had an appeal pending, with the hearing there new news?

            I hadn't heard anything new. I think I had it confused with another restaurant w/lease issues (Park Ave. Cafe).

      1. We had a very good meal at Tout Va Bien. Very old school and traditional, if that's what you're into.

          I like Tout Va Bien too. It's very very cozy, friendly and intimate. The old lady there is extremely nice, offering us free desert and drinks often!

        2. I had a wonderful dinner after the theater at Marseille on 9th last year. Wonderful food. Bon Appetit.

              We love Marseille. It's really Moroccan/French bistro, but it's always excellent and I never feel like I've been ripped off.

          1. Thank you all for the great suggestions!
