THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Les Deux Gamins Restaurant Review

: The second incarnation of this West Village favorite (in the ’90s it was a block away on Christopher Street) occupies the space that was the short-lived and über-hip Metropol, on the unlikely intersection of West Tenth and West Fourth Streets. Gone are the sleek movie stills of French actors, replaced by rustic knickknacks (brass pots and pans, etc.) that adorn the unfinished concrete walls. And the menu has a more traditional feel to it; all the classics are here: the croque monsieur, the niçoise salad, the coq a vin. The burger---that not-so-French but very New York staple---could rival nearby Westville for best burger on the block (the $3.50 extra for a slice of cheese at Gamins, however, is outrageous). Service is inattentive, but with cozy leather banquettes and open windows looking out on to the West Village, it’s not hard to settle in here for a while.
