Bistrot du Coin Restaurant Review

: Come at night, says the voice on the phone. It’s really buzzy then, jammed and boisterous. We liked the daytime---mid-afternoon was crowded and buzzy enough. At other times, you’d best make reservations so you can rub elbows with the In Crowd; otherwise, you may have to wait. Start with the flavorful onion soup, which comes with plenty of melted cheese. Want something light? How about a tartine, made with whole-wheat bread with assorted toppings, such as vegetables or ham and cheese? Or go whole hog with the grilled steak (at lunch this becomes a steak salad), sliced duck breast or rabbit stew. It’s all very French and very fun. Desserts include a custard tart, an apple tart and a crème brûlée. The acoustics aren’t terrific, but you’ll probably be having so much fun you won’t care.
