Le Grainne Cafe is located on 9th Ave and corner of 21th street in Chelsea, across the street from popular cupcake shop Billy’s Cupcake ♥ My friend who moved from Paris, him and his wife are living in this neighborhood and this place is their go-To-Spot.  Menu is between French Cafe and Bistro.  Atmosphere and decor of place are very much like a cafe. My favorite dish was Escargots. I always enjoy more if Escargots come with shell. It’s Cuter that way #Snail

Lucien is a cute french bistro off of the east Houston neighborhood. This place has been opened more than 10 years and I come here in the winter time more often than summer. Somehow when the weather gets cold, it makes me wanna come to this place. Food here is all really good and my favorite is the Rabbit with Egg Pasta, Duck with Fig Sauce, very creamy White Wine Broth Mussels, and Pan-Seared Foie Gras. If you don’t have the time to go to Paris come here instead (^_^)! Lucien is a mini Paris bistro in NYC !! Bon appetit (^_^).

Les Enfants Terribles

www.lesenfantsterriblesnyc.com    CLOSED 

This is one of the first restaurants opened more than 10 years ago in the LES/Chinatown much before Bacaro and Fat Radish were still going strong. They were always clouded with young neighborhood regulars until new customers found this destination location. In the springtime they have outside tables and the inside bar counter is always busy with people enjoying cocktails and snacks. The food is bistro with a twist of african influence. Most of the dishes are under $20 to reasonable. I recommend to come here with a friend any night of the week for casual dinner and drinks.
