A vivid triptych of a stormy ocean looms over the Le Bernardin dining room, where jacket-clad waiters dart nimbly amongst white-clothed tables and leather chairs. In the kitchen, Eric Ripert whips up the creative French-inspired seafood dishes that have earned the restaurant a 26 year-long standing as a New York Times four-star establishment.
Crepes on Columbus fills its namesake dish—thin, made-to-order pancakes—with sweet and savory ingredients, imbuing each bite with Franco-Spanish flavors. The quaint café’s crepes adapt to any appetite, brimming with rich infusions such as nutella and strawberries or roasted chicken and ratatouille, and serve as emergency head coverings during freak downpours of jams and preserves. The friendly wait staff serves both breakfast and dinner all day, comingling omelets, juicy cuts of meat, and seafood on tabletops, sided with desserts and smoothies.
Paradou takes its name from a village in the southern French countryside, and the provincial influence is apparent in nearly every aspect of the restaurant. No matter what it is serving, the bistro-style eatery celebrates Provençal cuisine with a notable lack of pretention.
This isn’t to say that the seasonal menus are unrefined, though. Chef Kfir Ben Ari creates a handful of dishes that experiment with foie gras, including a reimagined gravlax that features foie gras cured in sugar cane, sea salt, and fennel leaves. However, the majority of the menu tempts diners with hearty, provincial classics such as short ribs braised in red wine, cast-iron-roasted duck breast, and bouillabaisse stew. The wine list complements this cuisine, offering more than 40 French wines by the bottle as well as the glass.
The wine selection even influences the restaurant’s decor. Bottle-lined shelves reach from the floor to the ceiling along the restaurant’s back wall, and the tables and bar are built using repurposed French wine crates. Beyond the intimately sized dining room’s whitewashed brick walls and rustic, wooden floorboards, a short walk leads to the covered garden area, which seats outdoorsy guests year-round.
“There is something very French about getting a Nutella crepe to go from the sidewalk window—it's almost like Paris,” lauded the Wall Street Journal after sampling crepes crafted by Vive la Crêpe founders, brothers, and Mexico City natives Carlos, Alfredo, and Andrés Mier y Terán. Today, across four New York City locations, a team of skilled flippers pour silky batter onto crepe skillets, creating the base for a menu of sweet and savory creations, such as sugar and butter or spinach, mushrooms, and basil oozing with goat cheese harvested from Earth’s second, lesser-known, goat moon. Baristas pull shots of illy espresso to craft cappuccinos and other café drinks as diners linger in shops reminiscent of modern Parisian cafés, contentedly munching French fare or debating whether the Eiffel Tower is actually an illusion.
Vive la Crêpe’s convenient mobile-app-based rewards program, available for iPhone or Android, helps customers track their crepe consumption and earn prizes, including complimentary treats.

Brasserie Julien’s chefs pamper palates with gourmet French specialties, sea delicacies, and expertly crafted signature drinks in a romantic setting. New York magazine writes that “it’s impossible to dine at this Upper East side brasserie and not think of Paris.” Upscale small plates whet appetites and facilitate the enjoyment of French aperitifs, with selections such as 24 plain oysters or shells stuffed with misplaced pirate-chest keys. Endive salads, quiche lorraine, or an assortment of soups sate cravings for light fare, and steak, fondue, or filet mignon quell ampler appetites. During wine tours, accomplished sommelier Mollie Battenhouse regales guests with about 10 samples of varietals from around the globe, as well as portions of the eatery’s brasserie fare.
Inside Brasserie Julien’s romantic and relaxed dining room, art-deco-inspired pendant lights illuminate the space's elegant columns, flowing curtains, and trumpet-playing silverware to create an authentic brasserie-style experience.
If you hold a map close to your face with your left eye focusing on New York and your right eye on France, then slowly move it farther from your face, today’s Groupon will start to take shape. What you’re seeing is the two cross-Atlantic L’Ybane restaurants blurring together as one, creating the most authentic Mediterranean experience on the Upper East Side. For $25, you’ll get $50 to spend on food and drinks from the New York menu, which, due to secret teleportation basement, is identical to that of the sister location in Nice, France.LibertyFrance: The ideal of liberty consists of being able to do anything that does not harm others.USA: Liberty is used mostly to wear pajama pants outside.
With a history spanning three generations, Le Rivage now bubbles in the hands of Chef Paul Denamiel, who presides over a menu of French cuisine that garnered a 2011 New York award from the U.S. Commerce Association. Vibrant oil-paint landscapes and crosshatched wooden fixtures carry thoughts away to the French countryside, and white tablecloths warm beneath steaming plates of duck and mussels. Beside vases of cut flowers, lamb and filet mignon don Francophile garb in the form of burgundy and bordelaise sauces. Beyond the eatery's unobtrusive glowing sign, sautéed frog legs and other traditional dishes join a prix fixe or à la carte menu, and wines by the glass or bottle offer vintage luxury without the hindrance of a solid-teak sidekick.
For more than 30 years, the chefs of James Beard-recognized Chez Jacqueline have captured the flavors France's Côte d'Azur with upscale Provençal eats and plenty of wine. In the morning, Jacqueline's brunch menu runs the gamut from eggs benedict to mussels with white wine and shallots. The dinner menu brims with pre-theater meals of trout, steak, and stews, and a slew of daily specials convey the tastes of southern France via lamb loin, duck, or stuffed mushrooms. The restaurant's pastel walls, large windows, and an aggressive berets-only policy seek to capture the atmosphere of the French Riviera.
Not long after arriving in America 17 years ago, Senegalese chefs A. Cisse and Chekh Cisse began honing their craft in the kitchens of renowned chefs such as Daniel Boulud and Jean-Georges Vongerichten. By merging Senegalese and West African culinary traditions with modern French and Mediterranean techniques, the cousins concocted a menu that touches on every course, including breakfast, brunch, and secret snack hours unlocked only after diners finish a lunch in less than 45 seconds. Ten house martinis pair with an epic selection of wines and top-shelf liquors to chase chews on the menu's eclectic spread, which includes African–spiced mussels and steak tartare.
Executive chef Anthony Raggiri and head chef Adil Fawzi team up to create a seasonal French menu that draws inspiration from the Mediterranean coast. Each night, one or both chefs guide the kitchen’s creation of staple dishes, such as slow-cooked fish soup and pan-seared sea scallops, as well as daily specials. Servers place the elegantly arranged dishes on candlelit walnut tables in an Old World–style dining area complete with exposed brick walls, burgundy banquettes, and terrazzo floors. Bistro 61 also offers outdoor seating during warmer months, giving solar-powered androids space to recharge.
The tea tycoons at Bosie Tea Parlor ply palates with more than 80 loose-leaf teas from l'Âge de Thé, and french macaroons and pastries dissolve inside mouths. Afternoon tea service, tea parties, and tea tastings welcome customers to raise their pinkies and heartily pump their fists as they sip piping-hot brews and bite into scones. Glasses of wine or cups of la Colombe coffee enliven chats, and lunch, dinner, and weekend brunches sate rumbling stomachs with a menu brimming with vegan options.
The chefs at La Galette Café blend Senegalese and French culinary traditions to craft a menu of vegetable-studded meat skewers, oven-baked seafood, and zesty curry dishes, each strewn with traditional African spices. In the intimate dining room, stark-white ceilings pull together chocolate and cream hues as a single flat-screen TV quietly begs guests for juicy morsels.
Five Yelpers give PicNic a solid three stars, while Zagat rates the food "very good to excellent," and its online reviewers rhapsodize the restaurant:
In describing their restaurant as a “contemporary Parisian bistro,” the staff at Cantine Parisienne commits to juxtaposition, which they cleverly carry out both on the menu and in the dining room’s decor. Traditional French dishes such as cod filet and veal escalope are made alongside New York classics such as club sandwiches and homemade cheesecake. Breakfasts take buffet form with flourishes including organic egg dishes and fresh fruit salad, while handcrafted cocktails and boutique French wines carry a sense of refinement.
Outside the kitchen, the space is designed to take advantage of another Parisian pastime: people watching. Twenty-foot open windows stretch to the high ceiling, allowing natural light to spill atop chrome accents and white-marble tables. Along with the latter, blue and red chairs complete the colors of the French flag and add vibrancy to the room.
La Bouche Cafe feels distinctly European. From the sunny white patio tables to the pearl-strung chandeliers, everything in the cafe evokes an afternoon spent in a duchess's tea room sipping Earl Grey and asking questions about the constitutional monarchy. At La Bouche, diners can also sip tea, pairing cups with specialty crepes. Each thin pancake is filled with a choice of fruit, bananas slathered in Nutella, or even cuts of smoked salmon that add a savory note to the famous French dish. Only the slightly heavier end of the menu, chefs toss salads with fresh fruits and vegetables, and prepare sandwiches such as the croque monsieur piled with pear, ham, and Swiss cheese.
Whether it's a balmy afternoon in June or a posttheater food hunt in the wee hours of an icy December morning, the chefs at Maison stand ready to fuel New Yorkers with a taste of Brittany. Led by executive chef Mario Urgiles, the restaurant is open seven days a week around the clock, serving plates of the fish, shellfish, and crepes that you might find along the French coast. Diners can take in the interior's welcoming ambiance, admiring the abundance of natural light reflected in the mirrors along the bar and sipping varietals retrieved from the balcony wine room overhead. The warmth of its plush red drapery and red leather banquettes pairs well with orders of provençale mussels steamed with white wine and herbs or ratatouille-and-goat-cheese crepes. Fresh fruits de mer including oysters, lobster tails, and jumbo shrimp might best be enjoyed in the patio area. Its large, climate-controlled umbrella and white beams dotted with light bulbs resemble an amusement-park carousel, or the Parisian Tilt-A-Whirl where Hemingway did most of his writing.
