Like many of the walk-up apartments in the neighborhood, this French restaurant belongs to the genus shotgun; it's long and narrow, with the bar and dining areas lined up front to back. Black-and-white photos (of Brigitte Bardot, and a scruffy Serge Gainsbourg) and vintage Paris Match covers cram the walls so that the rooms look crowded no matter how many seats are actually filled. Couples gravitate to the red chenille banquettes in the back, while 20-somethings perch up front to watch the traffic on the avenue. Bistro standards are the stock in trade; moules frites are particularly popular. The lamb shank is large enough to make you wonder about the age of the lamb. An extra shake of salt does most entrées good. Desserts fall into line with choices like profiteroles and a crêpe Suzette, slicked with marmalade-sweet orange sauce but served warm, not flambéed.


All-you-can eat-moules frites are $18 every night from 5 p.m10 p.m.
