If you're in the Barrow & Commerce area, for example at the Cherry Lane Theatre, skip the ur-trendy & smoke-filled Grange and walk around the corner to the tiny Petite Abeille.
The salmon and the Vol au Vent were fine, but the Carbonnades Flamandes was transcendent, best I've ever had this side of the Atlantic. And the fries were great, house red very drinkable at a bargain price. I'll take the flaming grill here over the fireplace at One if By Land anytime. Next time we're trying the steak and the moules.
