Café Lafayette (CLOSED)

Restaurants, French Fort Greene

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

With fewer than 30 seats, this café is a kind of secret locals like to keep to themselves—in order to have a better chance of scoring one of the red booths. Appetizers such as escargots share menu space with (decidedly less French) onion rings and shrimp fritters; the fabulous salad of warm spinach, bacon chunks, feta and caramelized walnuts is a meal in itself. Excellent mushroom risotto can be ordered as an appetizer or

an entrée. The coq au vin can be a bit tough, but is redeemed by a side of the best potato gratin west of Lyon, followed by an exquisite apple tart.
