Cornichon serves simple French fare on a stretch of Grand Street that harbors battered dives like Clem’s and Trash Bar. The tiny open kitchen turns out a good variety of plates despite consisting of little more than a few burners and a sandwich press. Split baguettes are smeared with pate and layered with sauccison, and open-face tartines parade a range of toppings from tomato sauce and goat cheese with herbes de provence to smoked salmon slathered with crème fraiche. These are supplemented by a hefty quiche and plat du jour like beef stew. The propriétaires have given the space a handmade charm with tables built out of old cabinet doors and mismatched chairs, and they can usually be found behind the bar or taking orders. The operation is big considering the petite pickle that gives the spot its name, and there’s even more room in summer when the outdoor garden opens.


The kitchen closes at midnight daily.
