Useful information


This Alain Ducasse bistro, housed in the venerable La Côte Basque space, may have been renovated in recent years, but it remains decidedly Old World in look, feel and taste. The setting remains a sight to behold, with its abundant framed mirrors, red velvet banquettes and oak paneled walls. In the front salon, two red wingback chairs are tilted in to face a working fireplace and make an idyllic spot for nibbling madeleines at the end of your meal.

To begin, peruse the menu of Chef Laëtitia Rouabah’s classical French cooking, featuring the likes of leeks vinaigrette or foie de veau, while snacking on fresh gougères. Traditional desserts are a highlight, especially the crème caramel, flecked with vanilla beans and served in a generous pool of sauce.
