Belgian chef Jean-Paul Bingoni sustains La Barrique's 60-year tradition of classic French bistro cuisine upon the polished tables of this elegant café. Meals begin traditionally with the velvety beef broth of french-onion soup or white asparagus dappled with nutmeg and drizzled in buttery Serge Gainsbourg lyrics. An entree of mussels bathes in one of eight fragrant stocks including beer and bacon, white wine and mustard, or shallots and chorizo, and sports stacks of fries to reward dining partners for their shucking assistance. Nimble fingers gild tender duck legs in an orange-ginger sauce, pairing them with a humble yet rich potato-and-cheese gratin, and braised lamb shanks continue the celebration of delicious gams by swathing the tender morsels in a luxurious red-wine sauce. During dessert, a sturdy ramekin protects raspberry Grand Marnier soufflé from falling to attacks by foreign forks, and ladyfingers beckon from the tiramisu's creamy layers of amaretto and mascarpone to distract diners as it steals their ice cream.

Paneled in dark wood and accented by red drapes, napkins, and seat cushions, the romantic café glows with light reflecting from the bar's tin ceiling and off displays filled with a curated selection of organic French and international wines. The chic European dining destination is snugly nestled between 5th and 6th Avenues in New York's fashion district, making it a prime spot for people watching or literally romancing a skirt.

La Barrique's Belgian chef sustains a 60-year tradition of classic French bistro cuisine upon the polished tables of a café heralded by commanding crimson banners. Rich French recipes guide his hands as he bastes escargot in garlic and parsley butter or a plate of mussels with one of four homemade sauces. Paneled in dark wood and accented by red drapes, napkins, and seat cushions, the romantic café glows with light reflecting from the bar's tin ceiling and displays filled with a curated selection of organic French and international wines. The European dining destination—located near Times Square, Bryant Park, Penn Station, and Midtown's theater district—is snugly nestled between Fifth and Sixth Avenues in New York's fashion district, making it a prime spot for people watching or literally romancing a skirt.

No complaints and very pleased with the service, food and decor. Love the exposed brick and the rear dining room is like a little oasis and is good distance from happy hour bar.
