Chez le Chef (CLOSED)

Restaurants, Eclectic Kips Bay

Revolving trays of glistening tarts and cases piled high with marzipan figurines make for awe-inspiring displays at this quirky pastry-shop-cum-restaurant. The kitschy second-floor dining room is strung with twinkling Christmas lights and candy-colored murals, an odd accompaniment to the Pan-European fare (beefy Hungarian goulash shares billing with an excellent coq au vin). The menu borrows from within the ’hood as well: Basmati rice and chai masala tea are reminders of the restaurant’s location on Curry Hill’s main drag.
