This café’s dusty charm was once believable enough to land it a supporting role as a mid-century Parisian bistro in Julie & Julia, but its new aesthetic (very loosely inspired by the works of Jean Cocteau) resembles a Francophile’s screensaver, with walls covered by large, full-colored images of cartoon croissants and a wobbly Eiffel tower. Much of Moutarde remains the same as before, from its banquette seating, marbleized mirrors, and electric candle sconces to its famous hangar steak and mussels. The mustard theme remains—a vial of the stuff adds a pungent edge to the carrot and celery slices that preface every dinner. The most prominent addition to the menu is a group of poêlées, or small entrees served in their own quaint, silver-pan cooking vessels. A crop of seared tiger shrimp is served with creamy buttermilk squash and zucchini. Untouched standbys include a good-enough burger (also available in a kid-friendly trio of mini-patties with varied toppings) and a series of moderately exotic French specialties like the duck leg confit.
