Talk about a room with a view. As part of the French market, Le District, Beaubourg sits on the banks of the Hudson, facing a wide promenade and a beautiful row of yachts. Diners linger over crisp French wine and excellent cheeses, soaking in the scene. It’s a picture postcard in the making, but this brasserie is more than just a pretty face. Start with phenomenal house-made charcuterie-from the velvety foie gras to the dense terrines and creamy pâté de campagne, everything is luscious. The wonderful steak tartare, dressed with anchovy, briny capers and a tiny, quivering quail egg, arrives with crispy pommes gaufrettes; and entrées like perfectly roasted chicken and delicate Dover sole in lemon butter make for a refined and elegant finish.
