THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Saint Germain Restaurant Review

: Saint Germain is French from head to toe, but with a menu just shy of a classic French bistro. With cane-back chairs and striped curtains, and informative waiters, we travel from Madison Park to Montparnasse the minute we take seats at a blue banquette. Originally intended as a wine bar, Saint Germain diners asked for meals and thus a list of savory tartines and other sandwiches emerged to pair with a list of mostly French wines by the bottle or glass. We savor sips of a Catalan red from the Pyrenees with a salade Saint Germain---butter lettuce, fennel, apples and a light vinaigrette---and a grilled chicken sandwich, with prosciutto and garlic butter. We find the croque monsieur nicely buttery and rich. Cheese and charcuterie plates, rillette, and daily soups complete the menu. Desserts are a delight and the coffee fresh. For a decadent weekday lunch or early evening dinner, Saint Germain satisfies like a nice chilled white at sundown.
