Restaurateur Ciro Colantonio has a knack for knowing which neighborhoods need a little more cozy French sustenance. Having already sated fussy Upper East Siders with Le Refuge and Morningside Heights locals with Métisse, Colantonio moved south to Hell’s Kitchen in hopes of pleasing resident Francophiles via traditional bistro fare (steak au poivre, escargots, and coq au vin) at one of the dozens of candlelit, dark-wood tables. Those less interested in intimate table talk can grab a seat at the 30-foot slate bar, where filling appetizers, including a crêpe bursting with scallops, shrimp, and crabmeat, can be enjoyed in front of two ESPN-friendly flat screens. Wherever you’re seated, the crisped yet tender duck slices paired with fresh mango and the meat-loaf maison with cherry-wine glaze are exemplary.Brunch
