We picked this restaurant because of its Zagat rating for best french bistrot in NYC.
While the place has a great bistrot ambiance and the staff is very friendly and good I think the food was very good but not excellent as anticipated.
I had a cassoulet which would be fantastic for someone who never had cassoulet, but got to say "I make a better one" and I am not a professional cook.
My wife had a boeuf bourguignon and I believe they used almost the same base sauce for the cassoulet and the boeuf bourguignon and then added different meat, beans etc.
If you never had decent french food then you will mesmerized by the food, but if you have a palate well trained for french food, it will not be your best french meal.
