We have twice tried to have dinner here - Feb. 14 and Apr. 14 - and have come to an empty restaurant. So don't be fooled by their website or telephone answering machine which still seems to function, because no one is home. Even the...More

Lovely entrance and impressive decor. We were welcomed and felt comfortable. In reviewing the menu we glanced at each other with a big question mark above our heads. Quite limited and not exciting. The Taboulie was wonderful. The salmon was excellent. A special request was...More

Must be the most "stylish" breakfast we ever had in New York. The restaurant setting breathes "class" and the service as well as the food itself were almost "un-American". Real silverware, napkins, etc. It is not inexpensive, but hey, if you want to feel special...More

Very good food, but a little bit of loud music and chatter noise makes it difficult to talk comfortably.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

Chef "G" Guilherme Barreto will delight you with French classics, taking you on a journey through Provence and reflecting the surrounding coastal Mediterranean flavors, including the chef’s and owner’s family recipes. The atmosphere is 1920s Parisian Brasserie with original décor from the period; designed and built by hand by owner Angelo Peruzzi who grew up in France. The 74-seat dining room is wrapped by 21 French doors that provide panoramic views of the neighborhood and 59-seat sidewalk café. The bar features one of the largest seamless pewter countertops in the country and warm custom backlighting fabricated by the owners. The triangular shaped room and giant handmade mirror collages provide unique and wide views to every seat in the room while retaining an intimate feel. Guests dine on luxurious red leather banquettes and cushioned chairs while they listen to music programmed on one of the finest restaurant sound systems and room acoustics in the City.
