Cafe Cluny, New York, NY

Cafe Cluny Restaurant Review

: Set on the quaint (and unlikely) corner of West 4th and West 12th Streets, this smart-looking neighborhood bistro is brought to you by the team behind the famed Odeon. The Franco-American offerings won’t surprise Odeon regulars, but for the initiated, Cluny is a charmer. Rabbit is slow braised with herbed dumplings and Dijon jus, while the Long Island codfish comes with roasted pears and lentils, achieving a nice balance of flavors. Even the simple burger, topped with a slice of Gruyère, is almost as good as the one offered at that burger institution a block away (the Corner Bistro), but for about three times the price.
