Keith McNally has been trying for years to replicate what Raoul’s has been doing since 1975—serving first-rate French fare in an authentic bistro setting. Raoul’s timeworn look is the real deal: Authentic antique furnishings, pressed-tin ceilings and walls, black-and-white leather booths, and paintings of female nudes beckon. The food is as seductive as the atmosphere. Magret duck breast is sliced and served over kale and carrot puree, and a thick, charred cut of sirloin smothered in black-peppercorn sauce is tender enough to erase any comers from your memory.

Arguably the best pepper steak in the city—still. A thing of beauty. The weekends are near impossible, but go late on a weekday: bottle of wine, deep curtains, sexy art. It's a vibe that's hard to beat.
