This café's long history starts way before the South Street Seaport became one of New York's busiest tourist traps. Back in 1873, a man named Henry Meyer built a hotel and bar that would eventually host people like Thomas Edison and Annie Oakley. Today it doesn't quite attract the same star-studded crowd, but locals and tourists alike do stop in for a burger and a beer. Despite its name, you won¹t find French cuisine here; instead, it's mostly American comfort food complemented by a few pastas and New England seafood. Maryland crab cakes, grilled sirloin steak, fish and chips, shepherd¹s pie and linguine with clam sauce are just a few of the traditional items on the menu. Choose from 18 different beers on tap, including domestic, imported and mainstream craft beers, all served in 20 oz. glasses. The two-story space mixes an ancient wooden bar and antique moldings with brown leather banquettes and exposed brick.—Keith Wagstaff
