If you need to get away without really getting away we have found the perfect place - Au Comptoir. It will make you feel like you've been whisked away to a bistro on the streets of Paris (without the cost of the flight).
The Parisian illusion starts with the bistro seats on the narrow patio that overlooks 4th Avenue. On opening the doors, you will be greeted by friendly, charming waiters with perfect French accents. A bank of tables on one side of the restaurant with blue leather bench searing provides for perfect people watching. The other rows of tables (with cast iron Singer sewing machine legs) provide more seating. The shiny tin bar adds sparkle and a little je ne sais quoi.
Au Comptoir serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner on weekdays and breakfast, brunch, and dinner on weekends. There are separate menus for each meal so you can sit there all day rolling from one menu to the next.
