A quite restaurant with old traditional furnitures. Nice atmosphere. Friendly service. Special selection of food- not too much, but very delicious. Everything what is required for a Dinner for Two.

What a cute romantic spot with yummy food. Loved the Escargot, French onion soup and Steak and Frites. The Brandy sauce was amazing and the steak was cooked perfectly. The soup had a hint of Rosemary. Really nice dinner and reasonably priced.

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
