My husband and I just had a fabulous dinner at Le Petit Bistro. Of all the restaurants in the area (and there are many excellent restaurants because of the close proximity to the Culinary Institute of America) this is our favorite. These are the reasons why: there is always an electric buzz at the restaurant. We love Phil the bartender who can put together a margarita par excellence. The piping hot biscuits that are distributed throughout the meal are delicious. The butter is tastier than anything you'll find anywhere. The quality is consistently high. The service is excellent. It is fun to go if simply to experience Daniel who brings the chalk board and reads the daily specials (my husband does a great imitation of Daniel).
