This lovely spot transports you from New York to Provence. Bundles of dried herbs and flowers abound, as a rustic décor carries the city diner to a gentler, softer world. The traditional Provençal menu offers favorites like escargots in a divinely thick garlic tomato paste, grilled Mediterranean striped bass with artichoke mousseline and herb-grilled Cornish hen. The wine list includes a fine selection of French whites to pair with seafood or champagnes to enjoy as an aperitif. In an area filled with collegiate bars and take-out, this fine restaurant is a true oasis.
