Jules Bistro
Habitués at this chic enclave may have scored high-paying jobs uptown, but they still prefer to play downtown-style. Candles flicker, tables are separated by groovy beaded partitions, and the music has a swinging, loungey feel (lively groups like to be near the bar; quieter diners head for the narrow back room). There’s nothing nouveau about the food, though. Jules’s offerings are unapologetically hearty—beef stew simmered in red wine or spiced lamb shanks with figs. Dover sole is just flown in from France, according to the affable waiter, and the filet mignon special must beordered medium-rare.

One of my favorite spots in the city. The french fare is yummy, it's not incredibly expensive, easy to get a reservation, fits large groups, the ambiance is cozy and great, and they play live jazz almost every single night. What else could you ask for in a french bistro?

To top it all, the location is amazing right in the center of the east village, so you always have somewhere to go after.

Top notch - yay Jules.
