Brittany-born owner Thierry Rochard’s prototypical Gallic café still draws lines after 18 years. The inevitable wait and tight space are worth enduring for the crisp, salty frites; the BYOB policy with no corkage fee adds to the bohemian allure. Staples like an earthy steak au poivre and cheesy, decadent croque-monsieur dominate the short menu. An entrée of “spicy chicken” smothered in a white wine sauce deviates from the Franco format, but the tude from the couldn’t-be-bothered servers doesn’t.

Loved this BYOB spot. Showed up at Friday around 8 with 5 people and no reservation. We're able to seat us in less than 30 mins. Buratta with truffle oil was heaven. Salmon tartare was meh. Mussels we're good. Shrimp risotto special was delicious. Everyone got their own entree. We all split the bill and it was $32 each with tip. Really cute, romantic vibe. Would definitely go back.

One of my favorite spots in the West Village. This BYOB (!!) bistro is located on a quaint corner of the neighborhood, perfect for people watching on a nice night. The two pitfalls - (1) this place doesn't take reservations, so expect to wait a while. (2) This place can be pricey, but it is definitely worth it, especially with a BYOB option that does not charge for corking - which is so rare in NYC!
