French bisto suggestions?

bh_ | May 7, 2007 02:51 PM

Myself and three old friends are getting together for dinner next week. Any suggestions for an outstanding French bistro? It's one of the cuisines I know shamefully little about.

All of us are guys in our late 20s / early 30s who live in New York. I'm looking for somewhere casual where we can eat some terrific grub and swap stories. Definitely don't want stuffy or business-like or romantic or velvet-rope-scene. Cost not really an issue.

All four of us are pretty seriously into our food, so that's the prime criterion here (which should go without saying, but just to be clear...)

The ideal would be something like tia pol (great food, casual vibe), but French and without a 4 hour wait.

I did a search but didn't see anything that fit the bill - apologies if I missed an applicable thread.

Any and all suggestions welcome.
