Once referred to in Zagat's as "la rip-off," this French bistro actually provides decent value for the money (most entrees around $15). The old-school menu is seemingly immune to international experimentation: Highlights include a spectacular broccoli mousse floating in subtle cream sauce; Lyonnaise sausage perfectly grilled and sided with tart potatoes; and a huge salad of shrimp, greens, haricots verts, and chickpeas, doused with plenty of cilantro-laced dressing. A recent renovation has transformed the dining room from cave-like to open and airy, and a passel of pastas has been added to the bill of fare.
