Lunch. French. UWS.

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 ;-)

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

    1. 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).

      1. re: Ora

        Compass is not open for lunch.

      2. 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!

        1. Thanks for the responses! I'll be back tomorrow with a full report. :-)
