We love everything about Capsouto Freres-- the food, the service, the atmosphere, and, especially, the brothers. They serve the best duck I have ever had and the brothers are always present, making the restaurant feel like home. The soufflés are the perfect way to end...More

Love the typical French atmosphere. Quietly elegant. Delicious souffles for both main course and dessert. A touch of Paris in New York.

nickname in the 1970s. An attractive neighbourhood
