Bistro La Promenade

Executive Chef Alain Allegretti has traveled widely—a journey that has included doing battle on Iron Chef America—but his heart and palate remain in Nice, where he grew up. Nice is a seaside town, and although the farm where Allegretti lived as a child shows through in his focus on simple, seasonal ingredients, the Mediterranean exerts just as much of a pull on the focused menu. About half the entrees celebrate seafood, from risotto swimming with clams, shrimp, calamari, crab, and scallops to a dish of skate fish with applewood bacon. The rest are dominated by the traditional flavors of the French countryside: escargot, frog legs, and chicken-liver pâté. Some of the bistro’s most beloved dishes come in small packages, such as the zucchini-flower beignets, which Time Out New York placed on its list of 2012’s 100 best dishes and drinks, noting that “you’d be hard-pressed to find an airier, crisper, more addictive bite in all of New York.”

On the drinks menu, a large selection of mostly French wines is joined by some unexpectedly tropical cocktails, such as spiked lavender lemonade and mezcal mai tais. Brass lamps hang over the long bar and dining room below a black-and-white-striped ceiling painted to resemble an old-fashioned beach umbrella or a portal to the zebra dimension.
