Best French in Brooklyn
I am looking for a restaurant/bar/bakery/etc. anywhere in Brooklyn that has the ability to transport its patrons to France.
It's been many a year since we ate at Bacchus, because we thought it had gone downhill then and have not given it another chance, but it has a French atmosphere and is run by French people. Also run by French people is Autour du Monde and Canaille (French owner, but weird). We've never been to Le Baricou, but it's supposed to be very French. Also, if you accept the the Overseas Territories count as part of France, you should try Kaz An Nou for Guadeloupe food.
Bacchus: 409 Atlantic Avenue
Autour du Monde 860 Fulton Street
Canaille 78 5th Avenue
Le Barricou 533 Grand St.
Kaz An Nou 53 Sixth Ave.
Petite Crevette in Carroll Gardens is worth a look for seafood. BYOB, and run by a French ex-pat. And consider Almondine in DUMBO for French breads/pastries.
I agree with some of the other posters regarding Tournesol, it may not be in Brooklyn, but it's a gem of a restaurant with French speaking staff and a convivial, warm ambiance, excellent food and perhaps exactly what you are looking for.
Canaille is a rather interesting restaurant, the owner is a character, he was smoking in the restaurant while we were eating and it's a rather small space. The food was not particularly memorable but the experience was certainly "authentic".
