After reinventing itself, this French bistro in Williamsburg now serves even more affordable classics, like cassoulet and bouillabaisse, than it did when it first opened. In the back, a nineteenth-century–style wine lounge with antique furniture and a functioning fireplace opens onto a small garden space.

This local's favorite for french cuisine is definitely worth stopping in at. It's dark and romantic, the service is attentive and nice, and the food is rich and delicious (and fairly affordable too). We had a 3 course meal (as part of Grand Street Restaurant Week) and it was 30 dollars each! We both left really full and satisfied - definitely will be returning!
