Time Out says

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

While Tournesol has fast become a local favorite for some steak frites and magret de canard, even Manhattanites are making the trip for beautifully executed southwestern French cuisine at prices you’d be hard pressed to find across the East River. Squeeze into one of the red banquettes in the intimate one-room dining space outfitted with white tin ceilings and local artwork, and order a plate of perfectly seared scallops. If you’re feeling especially self-indulgent, split an appetizer of the obscenely good tartiflette au reblochon, a rich gratin of bacon and sliced potatoes in a melted pool of the nutty French cheese. The homemade foie gras terrine seems downright light in comparison.
