Joe Doe, Alegretti, Double Crown

Impressions of any?

  1. My impression is that you could hardly find three more different restaurants. Allegretti is very good, serious, Provencal French in a quite formal Flatiron dining room, entrees $30 and up. The chef is a Ducasse, Le Cirque, Atelier alumnus.

    Double Crown is loud, raucous, scene-y and serves hit-and-miss Asian fusion dishes and poor cocktails.

    Joe Doe is a tiny, casual new American spot, with entrees in the low twenties. I've eaten at the two above but not here.

      Hi Wilfrid,

      Have you visited Double Crown? Wondering what's good and what to skip?

      1. The chef at Allegretti may be a Ducasse alumnus but ducasse and his organization have no affliliation with the restaurant.
