So, I'm in mourning since my favorite restaurant, Jean-Claude, has closed. Could anyone recommend something similar, low key, charming, great food and does not break the bank?
Oh no, did both locations in UES and Soho close?
Le Philosophe and Benoit would good replacements.
I did not know they had an UES location, actually. Not meaning to be a downtown snob, but I rarely venture above 23rd St. Thanks for the recs. I guess by "not break the bank" I meant entrees that hew closer to the $20 mark rather than the $30 mark.
Have you been to La Sirene in soho? Its feels very neighborhood-y, is BYOB and generous entrees. Cash only http://www.lasirenenyc.com
Hi Nokitsch, I too am mourning the closing of Jean Claude in soho, it was such a great spot and consistently good!
A nearby option would be Bistro Le Amis which has a great prix fixe deal. +1 for Le Philosophe but its a bit pricier I think entrees in the high 20s.
I second Bistro Les Amis. It's been consistently better than Jean Claude for years.
