Amid delis and chain stores along Seventh Avenue sits a little French bistro worth noting: Le Singe Vert. On summery afternoons, it exudes the decelerated time-is-not-money pace of a Parisian sidewalk café, with outdoor seating where regulars laze in the sun. After dusk, wine flows freely at the mahogany bar, and the air buzzes with the chatter of artsy 20-somethings and older been-there-done-that couples. Furnishings fit the mold: black-and-white checkered tile floors, tiny wood tables, and funky exposed lighting fixtures. The techno music pulses in the background—usually low enough to be unobtrusive. The cuisine is a graceful version of bistro. Steak tartare, chopped raw beef and cocktail sauce, is heavy and rich. Save room for dessert, because those here are exquisite. Bring a date, but be forewarned—after a meal this decadent, you might be in the mood for nothing but a nap.


If you’re catching a show or just eating an early dinner, take advantage of the pre-theater three-course prix fixe menu, available from 5 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. for $35.95.
