This Tribeca eatery should look familiar to anyone who has ever been to Jules Bistro on St. Mark's Place or Bar Tabac on Smith Street; they're all owned by the same man, Georges Forgeois. The aesthetic is classic French brasserie: marble-topped tables, vintage posters, worn-in hardwood floors, vases filled with flowers and a sunny, 30-seat sidewalk patio. The menu matches the traditional French focus of the décor. Executive chef Pierre Landet prepares all of the classics like steak frites, magret de canard and moules marinieres, along with more inventive fare like diver scallops served over asparagus risotto and sautéed monkfish with baby artichoke ragout. Come during lunch (weekdays, 12pm-4pm) to take advantage of the three-course, prix-fixe menu or weekend mornings for the brunch prix fixe that includes one free brunch cocktail. The long wine list consists mostly of French wines, available by the glass, bottle and half-bottle, complemented by a number of classic cocktails, whiskeys and cognacs.—Keith Wagstaff
