Planche De Grillades is really all that needs to be said here, but I will say more. Everything I have ever tried in this place has been amazing. This even includes snails, which is something I never thought I'd say. It's pricey, yes, but not at all unreasonable for the amount of food you're getting.

Les Halles, Anthony Bourdain's restaurant, is a French bistro with great steak frites (especially the truffle frites). The macarons were amazing; perhaps the best I've ever had. The restaurant can be a bit noisy and crowded. The service is a bit spotty.

While in NYC, I had to pay homage to my favorite Cantankerous Culinary Figures....Anthony Bourdain. Love that snarky guy! So off to Brasserie Les Halles for lunch we went....
The moment we walked in the door, I knew we were going to LOVE this place. No, not just because of the food but because they were BLARING Jack Johnson over the speakers. And this girl LOVES her some Jack Johnson.
When our server handed us the menus, she informed us of their Monday Special--50% off all wines!! What the?! YIPPEE! So of course being the civic Americans we are, we did our best to add to the economy by ordering a full bottle instead of our original one glass plan
A quick perusal of the menu and we settled on the Confit de Canard and Steak Tartare avec Frites.
Friends.....words cannot describe how amazing this meal was. The Confit was so crispy and fall-off-the-bone tender. The piece of toast that sopped up the goodness was genius. As for the Tartare-it was perfect. So well balanced between the mustard, cornichons, capers, etc. And the fries...OH MY GOD, THE FRIES!!!!! Crispy yet somehow tender in the inside-I couldn't stop eating them! And the bf, who usually doesn't eat fries that much, said he needed to finish them all. Which we did :)
The prices were so affordable-which was so amazing considering the great quality food we enjoyed.
If you're in town, Brasserie les Halles is a MUST DO. Seriously.

This is true French food done well and cheaply. I have sampled every meal here from the crispy, fat-laden, but oh so heavenly duck confit to the rack of lamb to the mushroom omelet. The frites are always fresh, crispy, and addictive. The house made pate has a beautiful fat cover and great flavor. And the steak frites is consistently perfect.
Go on Monday nights for 50% off of a long list of wines selected by the sommelier. Go Saturday and Sunday for the $17.89 brunch. Really, go anytime for some damn good stick to your ribs food. I Love Les Halles!
The John Street location is now much closer to my home & work, so I go there. Completely unpretentious and yummy.

Their lean steak with peppercorn and truffle frites are awesome! Their cocktails are a little snooze-worthy in my opinion (perhaps a tad too mature for my taste); however, the service is always stellar and they play really good music when it gets late. I was bopping my head to jazz as I was sipping my port wine at the end of the night. Les Halles is always a positive dining experience!

I was here last Saturday during SantaCon (what a mess, drunken Santas everywhere!) We had reservations, and were seated quickly although we were 15 minutes early. The restaurant was noisy and crowded. We started with a bottle of champagne, since we'd just come from a tasting at Flute (see my review). Before we'd finished our first glass we were seated, and ordered appetizers. Two of us got the Terrine Maison house made country pâté, which was excellent. One got the escargot which were already out of the shell, but delicious. My wife got the Salade d’Auvergne and loved it. In addition, the French bread was crusty and top notch.
On to the mains, I went with the Cassoulet “Toulousain,” which is my go to dish at French brasseries, especially in winter. The duck confit, and sausage were excellent, the lardon wasn't cooked enough for my taste, and the amount of beans was shockingly scant, not enough to go with the meat portion, and they were the least expensive thing in the dish! My wife ordered the grilled salmon, which was done to perfection. My friend got the ginger marinated hanger steak salad, which he enjoyed. His wife got the crispy duck leg confit, frisée salad, and truffled potatoes, which she'd had before. The waiter was no help with the wine, and we ended up with an undistinguished Haut Medoc Bordeaux, not bad, but a let down after premium champagne. We ended by sharing a delicious crème brulee. I think we will be back.

After watching the show, reading the books, and almost paying the $100 for a ticket to a VIP reception... I had to give this spot a try.
For my last meal in the city, it was a perfect lunch. Flat iron steak, a good and buttery Chardonnay, and a double helping of fries. Yum!
The seat at the bar was great and allowed me to listen in on conversations and check out everyone who walked in.
I could sense the waitresses having been pounded in the linen closet. Was great!

Decadence. That's how food should be. Live to eat. (until you start living in your yoga pants).
Gorged myself at Les Halle's, former haunt of Bourdain. He has unfortunately gone onto to bigger things, but the quality of this place has not budged.
Foie Gras, bone marrow atop shiitake mushrooms, steak and fries, and copious amounts of wine.
I'm bringing Rome back, one hedonistic foray at a time.
