Le Bateau Ivre, New York, NY

Le Bateau Ivre Restaurant Review

: Visit this true French wine bistro and you may find culinary notables chilling out after a night in their own kitchens. Most nights are hot at Le Bateau Ivre, where young professionals fill the close seating or stand at the bar to schmooze and sip some of the 100-plus wines by the glass. The d├ęcor is woody Parisian with particularly attractive millwork. Le Bateau Ivre's easy eats include raw bar selections, tartines, lobster bisque, moules and various grilled items. Most dishes are designed to go well with selected wines.
