  1. My guess is that you'll want to try Artisinal.

        I agree with Jane. Artisanal has amazing fondue! I wrote about it on my blog here:

        Another interesting place for fondue is Swizz in Midtown West, but it lacks the atmosphere and French bistro decor that Artisanal boasts.

      2. Anyone know if Taureau has opened yet?

          It opened on Friday. I'm a regular at La Sirene. I liked this new restaurant a lot. Most of the favorites from La Sirene are available. For the fondue there is a choice of cheese or meat fondue. We chose the meat. You choose a type of meat (hanger, filet or a cheaper option I don't remember) and a type of oil if you want to upgrade from soy. We chose hanger and soy. It was accompanied by a vegetable plate (same as from La Sirene) plus 4 delicious dipping sauces: Bernaise, peppercorn, Roquefort and another. The peppercorn sauce was amazing. I ended up using bread to eat the leftovers. For dessert there was a chocolate fondue with fruit. I'm haven't tried much fondue so I was expected a really heavy cheesy dish, so I was very pleased with the meat fondue. It's also BYOB like La Sirene which should be a huge draw for the East Village. The interior is typical french bistro, significantly less cramped than La Sirene.
