This upscale French-Canadian eatery in the posh Yorkville area draws crowds for the usual reasons – great food, service and ambiance. But you might get a bonus chance to catch a glimpse of celebs like Mick Jagger, Charles Bronson and Sylvester Stallone. Included under the same roof is the bistro, with live jazz. Dishes range from Butter Poached Monkfish Fillet and Roasted Normandie Duck Breast to Veal Sweetbread Medallions. The wine list features more than 100 selections.
