THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Sel et Gras Restaurant Review

: Set in a space that long housed a pizza-by-the-slice place, this unpretentious French eatery in the West Village is casual and affordable. The menu is short with small plates and snacks and mostly features Gallic comfort food. Smoked chicken croquettes go down easy but at the same time are underwhelming. Duck rillette, a confit to be spread on toast, leaves a similar impression. The best options might be the most simple: a carefully curated platter of charcuterie or foie gras paired with strawberries. The wine list is brief but offers some well-priced selections by the glass. Dessert choices are minimal, but we can recommend the chocolate pot de crème.
