Windsor Terrace hounds have been hungering for a restaurant like the new Le P’tit Paris. Its hanger steak is first-rate: flavorful, tender, and cooked to a spot-on medium rare, jinx says. A duck entrée boasts perfectly roasted breast meat, crispy (if slightly salty) confit, and, perhaps best of all, a knockout timbale of roasted potato, mushroom, and garlic; “amazing … I could have eaten a full dish of it,” jinx sighs.
elecsheep9 recommends tuna tartare, punched up with caviar; hearty, satisfying coq au vin; and the Sacre Coeur salad (mesclun, leek, haricots verts, blue cheese, walnuts, and beets with Dijon dressing). Others like the bouillabaisse (a Friday special) and the mushroom and goat cheese crêpe. Prices are moderate, with no entrée over $20; oysters on the half shell are an especially good deal.
Not everyone is sold on this place, which was opened a month ago by the chefs from the Manhattan bistros Citron and Cassis. imsohungry‘s moules frites featured overcooked mussels and fries that seemed to have been frozen; “frankly, fairly inedible.” “It breaks my heart to write this,” she says. “We have been waiting for a good restaurant in WT for ages.”
