AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Value): It is astounding to those of us who grew up in New York that this fine French restaurant has sprouted up in Bed-Stuy. Fantastic food and great value.
Located squarely in an area that might be referred to as Brooklyn's final frontier for development, this authentic and thoroughly charming French eatery turns out exquisite cuisine and makes a strong statement as to how far the borough has evolved in this century's first decades. Classic and beautifully presented canard à l'orange, loup de mer, charcuterie or soufflé are only topped by truly great desserts. All of this makes for bohemian fine dining in a formerly derelict part of town. The restaurant has a charming back patio, allowing for the uniquely postmodern urban experience of exceptional dining amid the common brownstone walk-up apartments. In the interior main dining room, black-and-white portraits of famed French cultural icons, most seemingly captured deep in mid-thought, knowingly look down from the wall. The location is a short taxi ride from the hotels near the Barclay Center in downtown Brooklyn.
