Though its legendary hanging bread baskets are sadly a thing of the past, Jean-Jacques Quinsac and Frederic Geisweller's relocated bistro remains a temple to Gallic gastronomy. A dimly lit room, polished service and a well-executed card of francophone classics - vol-aux-vent d'escargots et joue de boeuf Bourguignonne, peut-être? - make any night right for romance. Book a cozy booth built for two next to the fireplace and you're bound to get lucky.
