Bistronomic Restaurant Review:

About the restaurant: After long-held posts as executive chef for Café des Architectes and One sixtyblue, Martial Noguier turned restaurateur with this modern, French bistro concept. Always a friendly face, he continues his tradition of working the room, greeting followers and newcomers alike with a wide-eyed smile.

Food & Drinks: Noguier brought his specialties --- silky-smooth pâtés, buttery-cheese plates, local ingredients, homemade charcuterie and well executed seafood. But in a departure from his fine dining, French-meets-contemporary American style, he experiments with more rustic cuisine, evidenced by roasted rack of lamb and handmade pastas, including a ravioli of the day. Desserts range from crème brûlée to bread pudding, but the warmed Hudson Valley Camembert still oozing in a crockpot with toast points, dried apple and candied walnuts could end the meal as easily as start it. Look for a refined-yet-approachable wine list and strong, classic cocktails.
