The chefs at Tree Bistro escort taste buds on a tour of the French Republic without ever leaving the comfort of the friendly East Village restaurant. Meaty morsels such as chicken-liver pâté and duck prosciutto populate the homemade charcuterie plate ($6 for one; $14 for three), and the fromage board surfs over a market selection of cheeses and waves of fruit relish ($4 for one piece; $18 for five pieces). Butternut-squash ravioli basks in sage-apple butter sauce ($18), and the braised leg of lamb pulls on its maple-glaze culottes ($24). Guests can dine between exposed-brick walls in the cozy dining room or beneath a warm canopy in the outdoor garden. Both sections offer an ambiance suitable for romantic dates, group dinners, or trysts among horticulturists.
On Tree Restaurant's canopied all-weather patio, happy chatter over American bistro fare rustles the blossoms dripping from trellises. Shareable dishes, including homemade charcuterie platters adorned with duck prosciutto and beef carpaccio or fromage boards with a rotating selection of fine cheeses, scoot back and forth across tables, busying hands like a finger-puppet production of Anna Karenina. Red brick walls freckled with hand-painted floral accents and high-contrast photographic prints draw eyes away from adventurous plates of crisp pork belly.
