On warm, sunny days, the sidewalk patio is almost always full with a crowd of European and American tourists watching the fashionable masses walk by in the heart of the Lower East Side. The style is vintage French bistro, complete with a large "Tabac" sign with a corresponding display of old cigarette cartons and various other bric-a-brac. Worn leather couches and flat-screen TVs tuned to soccer take up the front lounge, where bartenders serve up cocktails and five different beers on tap. The main dining room has more of a farmhouse feel with an antique scale and dried goods displayed on shelves. The menu is mostly made of French bistro staples like moules marinieres, steak frites and duck confit. On weekend mornings the place is packed with a stylish brunch crowd there for the prix fixe meal, which includes coffee and juice along with an entrée like the croquet monsieur or eggs Benedict.—Keith Wagstaff
