When the Meatpacking masses are bottlenecked at the door
to Pastis, you can defect to this sweet little alternative. Flowering hydrangea
in Paradou’s bucolic garden are a
pretty backdrop for postshopping (or preclubbing) patrons lingering over glasses of wine. The modern provençal menu ranges from simple salads to haute dishes like short rib cassoulet. For dessert, don’t miss the crêpes wrapped around caramelized apples and calvados or dark chocolate and candied orange.
