      +1, love their eggplant confit app.
      Le bonne soupe, also in midtown, is another more casual option, i like their mulligatawny and crepes

        Thanks everyone! I took strange md's pic of Benoit. Unfortunately, we got there at 4, and kitchen was closed. (I know I should have called first!) I was really looking forward to having dinner here as it was one my to go to list, but just always forgot about it.

        We had a some wine in the bar, but knew our toddler could not wait another 1 1/2 hour, and my mother was with all of us and she wanted to go to Serafina since it was only down the street. So that is where we winded up.

        GREAT suggestions all!! Thanks so much!

          I didn't realize you meant EARLY. I was thinking maybe 5. Give Benoit a try sometime when you get a chance, it's really very good.

            I thought we were also going to go for dinner @5ish. I will save that place for a date night with me and my husband!! And it won't be at 5!! Ha ha

            Thanks again for the great rec!
