2018 Top 10 French Restaurants
in New York Area

Chef Andrew Carmellini's French restaurant Lafayette is a New York hot-spot

The modern restaurant has its origins in French culture, and the French have turned cooking into an art form. We love to sample French cuisine, whether in cafés, bistros, brasseries or temples of fine dining, accompanied by fragrant wines and runny cheese. From simple ratatouille to haute cuisine, from Bouillabaisse to baguettes, from light fish to heavy sauces, from endive to foie gras, we revel in French food. And don't get us started about pastries! Below please find the best French restaurants in New York, presented in alphabetical order.
