Oriel Restaurant Review

: In Chinatown, this stylish and sophisticated wine bar offers a French bistro menu from chef Evan Algorri (Bouley NYC). Dishes include French onion soup, potato gratin with parsnip and chard, bone marrow with capers and shallots, escargots, steak tartare, a croque monsieur and loup de mer meunière. There are also cheese and charcuterie selections to graze on, along with a smart, all-French wine list and several draught beers and ciders.
