Welcome to the house that Bourdain built, a classic French bistro propelled by its chef-at-large's considerable star power. Anthony Bourdain might be too busy traveling the world for his TV show to cook in the kitchen anymore, but that doesn't mean his fans don't crowd the restaurant on a regular basis. The menu is considerably meaty, utilizing American Angus beef to the fullest with dishes like prime rib on the bone for two, hanger steak with shallot sauce and skirt steak with blue cheese. Bistro staples like moules frites, coq au vin and magret de canard are also available if you are laying off the red meat. There is a homey, worn-in quality to the dining room, all scuffed floors and vintage posters, with more wear-and-tear added daily by the approximately 600 diners that venture into the gigantic restaurant each day. Save a little cash by showing up on Monday, when the restaurant offers 50 wines for 50 percent off.—Keith Wagstaff
