This Tribeca outpost of a Paris mainstay has a casual, somewhat industrial space with an open kitchen and a 20-page wine list, plus everything you would want from an upscale French restaurant without any of the attitude. Each bottle on the list of 400-plus is painstakingly chosen for its terroir, and many of the featured wines are biodynamic and unsulfured. Michelin-starred chef Frederic Duca’s market-driven menu is sparse but to the point. The intensely savory wild morel appetizer is a must-try, and is also the only vegetarian item on the menu. The East Coast halibut is an accurate representation of the restaurant’s aesthetic: The just barely seared, delicate fish tastes faintly of the ocean and is served over steamed spring vegetables, like cipollini onions, waxy young potatoes, and fiddleheads, in a rich and silky paloise sauce. The cheese plate features a few local options, as well as a French-imported Bleu d'Auvergne. Following suit with the rest of the menu, the desserts showcase seasonal produce, with items like panna cotta with strawberries, and a pistachio parfait with raspberries and poached rhubarb.
