With most of New York full of restaurants churning out food where “speed of consumption” seems to be the priority, this was a real find. Le Charlot is a French-style brasserie, something that is rapidly disappearing in France itself, run by its Corsican owner. We...More

The two of us had a lovely time sitting outdoors at this café on a warm May afternoon. We were asked if we wanted lunch, though the time was 6 pm. We ordered four items totaling about $100 including gratuity: moules mariniere (generous serving), gazpacho,...More

Le Charlotte was jammed for Sunday lunch with the sidewalk tables filled first. Slow service as a result. Inside tables jammed together, so no semblance of privacy. Very good food when it arrived and huge portions. We split the steak and had left overs. Excellent...More

Recently in New York for a short stay, we happened upon a wonderful little French restaurant. Purely by chance, on a walk from midtown toward a museum visit, we stopped for lunch at Le Charlot. What a good decision it was. We were greeted and...More

This little French Bistro is a good spot for lunch when visiting the Frick or shopping on Mad Avenue. Absolutely terrific onion soup is a must. We also had the moules marinaire which was not as good with small mussels. Broth was excellent though. Very...More

We had visited the Frick Museum and walked several blocks to this wonderful place. Small and cozy. We had a late lunch of soups--both the mushroom and onion were delicious--and salads. The bread was as close to being in France as you can get. Had...More

One has to be somewhat sanguine when thinking about these things: just because I love something, doesn't mean you will. We all have different tastes and, of course, the world is a better place for it. OK, I love French food. I lived in Geneva...More
