Much of what you think of when you think of hip, fun, consistently reliable New York brasserie and bistro cooking can be linked to Lee Hanson and Riad Nasr, the co-chefs who opened such Keith McNally megahits as Balthazar, Pastis, Schiller’s Liquor Bar, and Minetta Tavern. Their first solo project bears traces of all those restaurants while establishing its own distinctive identity, one more in tune with French cuisine’s vibrant present than its romanticized past. The tabletops are bare, the wine is poured into the squat stemmed water glasses that are so popular in many of Paris’s buzzing bars à vin, and the menu is printed daily. You’ll always be able to find certain things, though: charcuterie, oysters, and offal; a petite steak of the day; a whole lobster cooked in a basket on the rotisserie and served with curry beurre fondue; duck-frites. And fans of natural wine have at their disposal a list more compelling than nearly any in town.
