It wasn't enough for chef-owner Antoine Bouterin to re-create the Provencal food of his childhood. He furnished his dining room with country antiques, potted herbs, and assorted tchotchkes as if it were a farmhouse in the shadow of the Queensboro Bridge. And his menu pays loving tribute to pre-fusion French comfort food with its "old fashioned onion soup," vegetable soup au pistou "my Grandmother's way," and "old fashioned roast chicken and potatoes."Recommended Dishes
Onion soup, $13.75; vegetable soup au pistou, $9; roast chicken, $24; bouillabaisse, $28; tournedos rossini, $32.
