Bistro Chat Noir is a hidden gem located within an elegant, street-level townhouse in the heart of New York City's fashionable upper east side. The menu's extraordinary continental cuisine offers a subtle nod to the owner's French and North Carolinian roots. Guests may dine alfresco on our covered terrace or step inside and feel as if they have time-traveled to a fine Parisian cafe. Terrace is pet friendly. Bon appetit!
