Named 2010 Chef of the Year, head chef Vincent Tropepe has exercised his expertise in French cuisine to feed the likes of Rudy Giuliani, P. Diddy, and Scott Baio, as well as craft a menu of rich French dishes for serving in his Parisian-inspired bistro. Appetizers, such as the house-made portobello-and-goat-cheese ravioli or snails fried in pernod butter, appease persnickety palates with quiet cooing and carefully culled flavors. Steamed mussels cool off in a chardonnay broth in the moulese à la mariniere, and other classic French preparations of duck, scallops, halibut, and steak recall the traditions and steak gardens of Provençal France. Between bites, patrons can sip glasses of vintage vino as they admire the eatery’s classic Parisian artwork, tiled floor, and wood-paneled walls.
Saint Germain French Bistro
Green Perrier bottles line the wood-paneled walls of the dining area, which is dotted with framed artwork depicting rainy afternoons and Moulin Rouge performers. Fragrant aromas emanate from the kitchen, where Chef Vincent Tropepe prepares Parisian bistro fare. A roster of celebrity clientele including Rudy Giuliani, Michael Bolton, and Hillary Clinton has enjoyed the refined techniques that Tropepe brings to his preparation of traditional French fare such as escargot Provençal, duck à l'orange, and crepe suzette. The menu also includes selections from Chef Tropepe's new cookbook, From Behind the Kitchen Doors, which details his career and favorite recipes. The rotating dessert selection includes a range of handmade pastries artfully adorned with meringue, fresh berries, and abstract chocolate renderings of local news anchors.
