Recommend the Beef Bourguignonne, excellent, freshly made perfect omelette and pomme frites. Very nice wines by the glass. We spent two hours having lunch. Service friendly, warm, attentive. Really very very nice.

This is the iconic New York that so many visitors

iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
