Cafe Luxembourg, New York, NY

Cafe Luxembourg Restaurant Review

: This tightly-packed Art Deco bistro, with its zinc-topped bar, cream-colored walls, antique silver mirrors and occasional attitude, is an institution in the Lincoln Center area. Start with crisp zucchini blossoms or the baby beet salad with arugula, goat cheese and shaved fennel with Mandarin vinaigrette. Entrées range from grilled yellowfin tuna with ratatouille vegetables to slow-roasted Colorado lack of lamb with fork crushed fava beans and English pea ragoût. There are reasonably priced three-course prix-fixe lunch and weekend brunch menus, as well as a pre-theater menu. After the opera or theater, a supper menu is offered that features omelets, sandwiches, crispy frites and other satisfying fare.
