According to most restaurant critics, the perfect meal is served on a plate, which rests on a table with legs. Try some upscale comfort cuisine the way it was meant to be served with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Mediterranean cuisine and drinks at Lautrec Bistro, located in the East Village. Within its intimate, cozy interior, Lautrec whips up hearty plates for discerning tongue buds. Run hands and eyes over the small but strong menu, featuring appetizers, salads, pastas, and grill-centric fare. Savor the earthy flavor of the roasted-beet salad, garnered with crispy goat cheese and herb vinaigrette, or make eyes with the lamb burger, a juicy patty adorned in a fetching frock of feta crumbles, spiced frites, tomato confit, and red-pepper aioli. Pasta patrons can pair orders of penne vodka with emotionally compatible selections from the extensive wine list.
- This is a very nice new bistro. The chef/owner was super friendly and welcoming, as was his wait staff. – todd r., Yelp
- I loved the place so much because it was cozy and quite [sic] enough to have a good conversation and also lighting/music were not distracting. With the name Lautrec, the place has a touch of nice French atmosphere. – June C., Yelp
