A little less self-consciously French than the East Village's other bistros, Jules serves up classics like steak-frites in a rollicking, music-filled underground space. The Francophones here are as likely to be shaking their terrycloth-hot-pants-clad derrieres as tucking in to whole roast fish ("le poisson est bon," one diner cooed). So what if the hanger steak is a bit bland? After a dozen oysters (East and West Coast) and a bottle of Sancerre, you’ll be lip-synching along to "Je t’aime, moi non plus" in no time.Brunch
