Mon Petit Cafe

Mon Petit Cafe is just as French as the pop from Kaïn, Gainsbourg, and other French musicians playing on the stereo. For 30 years, its culinary team—currently led by chef Bernard Zamble—has been serving up a mix of traditional and modern French cuisine. We chatted with Alessandra Mac Carthy, who runs the eatery with her mom, Daniele Delburg, about three of her favorite dishes.

The most modern dish: Duck hachis parmentier, “duo, French-y shepherd’s pies.” Instead of stuffing them with beef and potatoes, Zamble makes these with a base of pulled duck confit and two different crusts: one sweet potato plus mashed potato, the other turnip plus mashed potato, both topped with cheese.

The most traditional dish: Calf’s liver with caramelized onions and mashed potatoes. It’s hard to find calf’s liver in modern cafes—it’s “old world” food, as classically French as calling your car “the moving Louvre.”

The almost-famous dish: The Thursday night special, couscous royal. “We started making it thirty years ago. It’s a couscous grain and it has lamb, chicken, merguez (Moroccan sausage) and meatballs, and we serve it with our own bouillon.” Bon Appetit once requested the recipe, but ultimately didn’t publish it; it’s very labor intensive. Easier to stop by the cafe for this one!
