THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Jean-Claude Restaurant Review

: Owner Jean-Claude Iacovelli, formerly a captain at Bouley, has created a cozy bistro that could have easily been transported---sans the unfiltered cigarette smoke---from Paris' Left Bank. The tables are wedged tightly together and the music and conversation reverberate off the original copper walls. The food is prepared with the finesse of classical French training, and often reflects ethnic influences. The daily-changing specials may include grilled New York State foie gras with glazed sweet potatoes in a Sauternes sauce or shrimp ravioli with a tomato concassé and organic herb sauce to start, and such entrées as steamed mussel marinières with pommes frites. Opt for the crème brûlée for dessert. The wine list is very reasonably priced.
