Cuisine French

Between $25 and $50

A bit of Paris has landed in Little Italy with Chez Joël, the charming, red-brick corner bistro with its Francophile following and tasty fare. Gilded mirrors, pale yellow walls, a stunning crystal-beaded chandelier, and red velvet-draped windows weave an aura of timelessness, while French oldies piping through speakers add to the romance. Owned and operated by brothers Joël and Ahmed Kazouini, the beloved spot spins out bistro favorites like crocks of French onion soup with a deliciously browned and bubbly lid of cheese; steamed mussels with white wine; crème brûlée; and profiteroles. Cocktails like the Bleu Margarita and the Calvados Royale also have a sexy accent. In warmer weather, snag a seat in the breezy courtyard and dine under the trees.
