    Perhaps, L'Absinthe? It's on 67th, b/t 2nd & 3rd. It's been a long time since we had dinner there. The food was excellent, and I have not heard anything to indicate that that has changed.

      Second this. I haven't been in a while, myself, but I enjoyed my dinner the last time I was there.

      I ate at L'Absinthe a few months ago and really enjoyed it. Loved their hot, mini baguettes that they replenish as soon as you have eaten one...If you don't mind going up to the low 70s I'd recommend Magnifique, a very good and authentically French bistro that recently opened on Lexington @73rd St. (where Buzina Pop was). It was very busy when we arrived there around 8:30 PM two nights ago. The food was very tasty: huge scallops, excellent roast chicken, really good fries and fresh artichoke hearts served as a side that were the best I have had. Friendly and professional service.

            Thanks so much! I'm always looking for French comfort food, esp in that area. :)
