Chez Joel

One of the best French bistros in the city is actually in Little Italy. Chez Joel is small, has butcher paper on the tables, and is full of vintage posters that are cliche but still charming. The food here is fantastic—not groundbreaking, but perfect when you’re looking for a great steak au poive or coq au vin. Come here for a quiet neighborhood date night, even if you don’t live nearby.
