Le Graffiti Restaurant Review

: Set in a glass-and-brick-encased room at the front of a food market shopping center, Graffiti is an avenue Cartier fixture. Owner Adolfo Bernardo runs a reliable, professional restaurant where a regular clientele returns again and again, and it’s been that way for more than twenty-five years. Classics such as steak frites and hanger steak with shallots anchor the menu, along with a regularly changing lineup of other dishes inspired by Italian or Californian cuisine. The wine list is actually a book, with pages and pages of Grand Crus and vintages from France, Italy, Portugal and the U.S., and supplemented with monthly special selections and a wide choice of wines by the glass. Desserts may be the only downside, with a short offering of tasty but rarely imaginative cakes and puddings.
