Simple French dinner

dd992emo | Dec 8, 201409:10 PM     9

Bi-annual visitors to NYC, always in Dec. We started out years ago at Le Madeliene in Hell's Kitchen. When they closed we moved on to Gascogne, mainly for the cassoulet. Now they are closed and we will be in town this weekend.

We tried Le Gigot and I really wanted to like it, but the dinner was only okay and the noise level was just a little lower than the flight deck of an aircraft carrier.

Have a reservation Saturday night for La Sirene, but am a little concerned. Given our past two favorites, do you think La Sirene is the correct choice or should I keep searching?

Le Gigot
La Sirène
