Canaille on 5th Ave, Park Slope

cbking | Oct 14, 200705:26 PM     7

We had a lovely dinner tonight at Canaille on 5th Avenue in Park Slope, in the former Red Cafe space. It's only been open for a week or so, but we didn't experience any brand new restaurant jitters, and the host was friendly and helpful.

For appetizer, we split a baby arugula salad with yellow & red beets, goat cheese, and lardons, which was peppery and fresh. I had the lamb chops with sauteed red new potatoes and haricots verts, and they were beautifully tender and flavorful; my SO had the steak frites, which, while a bit tough, was tasty. For dessert, we split the chocolate pot de creme, which was out of this world -- subtle chocolate flavor, light, and luscious. Also had a nice Cotes du Rhone. Cash only, but a very nice dining experience, and a lovely addition to 5th Ave. More casual and a more limited menu than Cocotte or AOC Bistro (our recent 5th Ave French go-to places), but we had a lovely meal and we'll definitely be back.
