The long-awaited opening of Frenchette, from Chefs Riad Nasr and Lee Hanson (formerly at the helm of Balthazar, Pastis, Minetta Tavern), is now open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner service in Tribeca on West Broadway. New York’s newest French bistro doesn’t take itself too seriously, offers great cocktails and the full menu in the front bar room and cozy banquettes in the dining room facing an open kitchen. The French influence is certainly present in design, décor, and food—yet there’s a modern touch. You’ll find many familiar faces running the show, behind the bar and on staff. Some of our menu favorites include the Brouillade with scrambled eggs, Peconic escargots and garlic butter to start, followed by the petite steak au poivre with pomme frites.
