bistro les amis

This beloved Soho spot hits all the essential bistro marks: Black-and-white Robert Doisneau prints line the walls, white lace curtains dress the windows, and the courtly owner is known to dispense gratis port to deserving patrons. The worn cherry bar is the preferred perch for Spring Street locals, who opt for solid steak frites with herb butter and glasses of bordeaux. In addition to other standards (meaty crab cakes in creamy lobster sauce), there are welcome surprises, like oven-roasted monkfish coated in a bold wasabi sauce. Not exactly groundbreaking, but we’d happily linger on Les Amis’ turf, however familiar.

Bistro Les Amis has everything you want in a french restaurant, especially in the colder months. It's cozy and dimly lit and provides the kind of setting where you want to open a bottle of wine and lean into a conversation for hours. 

The service staff is incredibly friendly and informative. They easily convinced us to go for the bottle as we warmed up with some delicious French Onion Soup. Plus, the bread they serve every table is crusty and delicious and adds a nice touch to any meal.
