Right off 125th Street at Lenox Avenue, Chez Lucienne is Harlem’s place for classic French bistro food. The generous lunch prix fixe is popular with area office workers, while great hamburgers and a textbook croque madame sit among the generous a la carte options. A tidy Frenchman acts as maitre d’, standing in with a smile and offer to take your coat before pouring you a glass of wine at the zinc-topped bar. A weekend brunch menu comes complete with moules frites and other French-leaning savories, while Friday and Saturday dinner is half-price between midnight and 2 a.m. You’ll be there that late anyway, thanks to a rotation of live music.
