La Mangeoire Restaurant Review

: This cozy restaurant in Midtown East has been sustained by a loyal clientele since 1976. Wood accents, bountiful floral arrangements, and colorful paintings and copper cookware on the walls give the three dining rooms the feeling of a French country house. In fair weather, the sidewalk out front is set up like an outdoor café. Classic French dishes are well represented, including pâté and onion soup topped with aged Comté and Gruyère. A few family-style dishes are offered as well, such as roasted farm-raised chicken with country fries; coq au vin; and rabbit leg, tomato, mushroom and tarragon ragoût. In addition to the à la carte menus, there is a two-course lunch prix-fixe ($25) with coffee or tea and a three-course dinner prix-fixe ($49). The wine list features mostly French selections at reasonable prices.
