Cafe 1912 Restaurant Review

: Café 1912 may serve traditional French fare but the ambience is far from stuffy or pretentious. In fact, this tiny Midtown bistro is the place to go when you’re in the mood for crêpes or Niçoise salad, but not in the mood for a fancy restaurant or the price tag to go with it. Indeed, several main dishes are priced below $20, such as the crispy chicken breast stuffed with ham and Gruyère. The no-nonsense menu features such classics as strip steak with pomme frites, and burgers with Maytag blue cheese and bacon. Desserts, such as vanilla crème brûlée and bourbon bread pudding, are predictable but satisfying. The wine list is small but offers plenty of drinkable choices. Sunday brunch is one of the best in Midtown.
