This LES spot works its French gimmick with an enthusiasm that’s all-American: The expat owners have lined the shelves and walls of the rustic bar with signs and doodads en francais. Grab some bistro eats, such as caper-studded steak tartare, from adjoining brasserie Epicerie, and sip bordeaux or any of 30 other French wines.
