Perplexing choice of sandwich bread.
The atmosphere and service were good, but bad bread at a French-styled restaurant is a bit perplexing. The croque monsieur, which basically should be a tasty ham and cheese, was served as a hoagie sandwich rather than on good, crispy French bread. The problem with that choice of bread is that it is way too much bread for that kind of sandwich and what should have been a good sandwich could best be described as pile of ham and gruyere on soggy bread that reminded me of a bad Subway sandwich. A party at my table found his steak sandwich uninspiring and quite average. However, another couple eating with us claimed to have liked their dinner (they didn't have sandwiches), so the restaurant may be worth a try.
Traditional with a hint of gauche, this French-style eatery indulges the swanky 50th and France crowd.. In Short This candlelit brasserie looks the part of Parisian eatery, but read the writing on the walls--in this case, off-color quotes ribbing the French--and it's clear that this mega-bistro takes a tongue-in-cheek approach to Francophilia. The lengthy menu is traditional enough, featuring French classics like steak frites and mussels mariniere. It's the American-sized portions and doting waitstaff that play against fussy French stereotypes. Authenticity aside, suburban country clubbers pack in nightly (and Sundays for brunch).
