1 Love It
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.

Perfect old-school anniversary kind of place. Yes, you're going to eat the steak frites. And yes, you're going to be completely stuffed, but you're not going to pass up the tarte tartine for dessert.

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.
