Cuisine French

Between $25 and $50

For an oh-so-French experience on Asian food-centric Clement, denizens head to Philippe Gardelle's authentic bistro, where tightly spaced tables and paintings of the titular hats create a convivial atmosphere. Packed with regulars receiving bisous from the chef, Chapeau is warm and generous, a vibe that's aided by its strong Gallic wine list. Dishes are traditional with a bit of Californian flair, like fingerling potato chips in a friseé and duck confit salad or salted-caramel ice cream that tops the pain perdu. The cassoulet, wholesome with braised lamb, rich with smoky sausage, and earthy with white beans, is perfect for a foggy night in the Avenues. Come before 6:00 P. M. for the $30 early bird prix-fixe, or create your own from their many set menus.

      Pros

      French classics well prepared and nicely presented; chef is a native of Toulouse. Warm welcome from chef and his wife, who manages the front of the house. Lively atmosphere of diners happy to be there, whether celebrating a special occasion or not. Good French-oriented wine list, with some particularly good values from the non-Burgundy non-Bordeaux selections. Very good value for money overall. A great favorite of those of us who live in the neighborhood.

      Cons

      Tables a bit crowded, especially in the back of the room. An expansion into the space next door is in the works, I am told.

      Pros

      Bistro interior interesting

      Cons

      Waited 30 mins for water & menu, then the service got worse. Food overcooked, Halibut tasted & colored like cardboard; incredibly noise; owner trying hard to charm, but we couldnt care as the food and service were one of the worst restaurant experiences of the past decade. Waste of time and money
