Oh-so-popular and run by the Bruno family since 1982, this atmospheric bistro is not to be missed for its unapologetically creamy and butter-dreamy plates of traditional French cuisine. And despite the fact that their late, beloved Chef/grandmère (Marguerite Bruno) who steadily commanded the kitchen for an impressive tenure, is no longer with them, the scene remains busy as ever. Take in the creaky wood floors and parchment-colored walls hung with French-themed jigsaw puzzles. Then indulge in chilled leeks dressed with the famous house vinaigrette; sautéed veal kidneys in mustard-cream sauce; and steak au poivre with black or green peppercorn sauce. Plan ahead when ordering so you have time (and space) for a classic dessert soufflé with crème anglaise.
