Cafe Cluny, New York, NY

Cafe Cluny Restaurant Review

: Set on the quaint (and unlikely) corner of West 4th and West 12th Streets, this smart-looking neighborhood bistro is brought to you by the team behind the famed Odeon. The Franco-American offerings won’t surprise Odeon regulars, but for the initiated, Cluny is a charmer. Starters range from steak tartare to hamachi crudo to kale and avocado salad. Move on to steak frites, crispy skin salmon or slow-roasted porchetta. The simple burger, topped with a slice of Gruyère, is almost as good as the one offered at that burger institution a block away (the Corner Bistro), but for about twice the price. For dessert, you'll find profiteroles, black forest chocolate torte and caramelized banana trifle. Complement your meal with French wines, beer or cocktails. Weekend brunch is a popular choice.
