We went for the first time based off the recommendation of a friend and absolutely LOVED it. The ambiance was great, the food and drinks were delicious and then our dessert was phenomenal. We each ordered something different so we could taste the others (4 in all) especially the Chocolate Prada and we thoroughly enjoyed each of them. The cost was also reasonable for the quality we received. More

French | Williamsburg, Brooklyn

We really enjoyed La Cafette. We shared the meat and cheese board and it was unusually delicious, particularly well chosen cheeses. Then I had the steak with blue cheese sauce special and DH had the lamb shank. Both really good but the steak won. They had a very friendly wine list and we found a nice red at a good price. I had profiteroles for desert, DH had cheesecake. Win win, always a good conclusion! More

Discover New York

When a city never sleeps, waking hours are spent in cafes, diners, bars and restaurants of every shape and size that give New York its unique flavor. Once famous for pizza by-the-slice (local loyalties run deep), black-and-white cookies, and old world, mahogany-paneled steakhouses—the dining rooms of titans of business and other famous folks—Manhattan is now estimated to have 24,000 restaurants, from midtown’s korean barbecue to fast casual vegan burgers. Pillowy pork buns? You got it. French rotisserie? That too. And, of course, there will always be the perfect bagel, preferably toasted dark with smoked salmon, cream cheese, tomato, onions, and capers.
