Bernard Decanali has outfitted many of Manhattan's better-known French bistros, like Lucien and Casimir, but had always resisted the expat Frenchman's impulse to open one of his own. He caved in and christened the garden of his former Boerum Hill antiques shop Robin des Bois. Now he serves light French fare like an open-face poached-egg-and-ratatouille sandwich, and the Sherwood Special, a shareable charcuterie-and-cheese assortment presented on a handmade rustic board. Funky seating arrangements include a (well-scrubbed, we presume) carved bluestone Turkish toilet excavated from a French castle.


Sat.–Sun., 11 a.m.–5 p.m.

Reservations are accepted only for groups of 6 or more.
