Despite the demure Upper East Side- townhouse setting, Rouge is really a bargain bistro masquerading as a big-ticket restaurant. Nothing on David Ruggerio's menu breaks the $20 barrier, decorative dabs of sauce and baby boutique-greenery garnishes notwithstanding. The framework is French, with occasional forays into trendy Italian and Asian territory, like the spicy miso-marinated Chatham cod. The "chef's wine list" is a bonanza of equally affordable bottles at laughably low mark-ups.
