This “funky” LES “hot spot” from the Carbone team delivers “fun” French fare “reimagined” with Moroccan, Cajun and Southeast Asian influences in a “sexy” brasserie setup with “pink neon accents” ; it’s a “tough” reservation and you’re “definitely going to pay for what you get,” but the “buzzy” (read: “loud” ) crowd doesn’t mind.

If only it were that easy. Take a great location, refurb the space with a hip pseudo French theme and make a huge success. Only one problem, you’ve got to sell good food. If you’re looking for a French experience or indeed a great culinary experience then this isn’t it. If you’re only going for the wine, by all means go. The wine list is excellent, and the ambiance is awesome. Just don’t set your expectations that high about the cuisine. It’s OK. Fusion is tough to get right. They clearly didn’t. You know how a good restaurant reacts when you drop your napkin on the floor. Don’t expect anything like that here. In that sense this is a very French restaurant! Rudeness seems to prevail. Our waitress did her best but management clearly had other ideas about how to handle their clients. What disappointment.

I thought def this place would be over-hyped and precious given how vogue it is but legit it’s a really good place that lives up to its reputation. Excellent food. Interesting cocktails. Cool vibe and decor. Def I recommend.

Cool vibe. Beautiful Decor. Bartender was very friendly and knowledgeable, not to mention well-dressed, lol. But it really seem to be very overpriced. I think including tax and tip I paid $30 for one cocktail.
