That pretty much sums it up :-)

I'm looking for a place for lunch tomorrow in the West 70's or 80's. Preferably French, cause that's what I'm in the mood for, but I would take other suggestions. I'm leaning towards Bistro Citron...has anyone ever been?

PS I'm new here so be gentle ;-)

      Hey, ayissarose, Welcome! While there can sometimes be some bark to Hounds' culinary bites (puns running wild! lol), overall, we're a very friendly bunch.

      La Boite en Bois, on 68th St., b/t CPW & Columbus Av., is true to its name, i.e., a teensy "box" of a French bistro, not in but very near Central Park. Good food and charming ambiance.


      Wherever you decide to go, I hope you'll report back and continue to post.

      Enjoy and Bon Appetit!

        Consider Nice Matin as previously recommended--if you order right it can be really good. Bistro Cassis is also good, reminds me of a small left bank Parisian bistro. I love the mussels & fries at Compass (the bar menu).

          Compass is not open for lunch.

          I had lunch at Nice Matin recently. It was pretty good -- 79th and Amsterdam.
