For your next special occasion/fancy night out dinner in SoHo, consider the French fine dining at Le Coucou.
Wildair is a casual wine bar on the Lower East Side, attached to the acclaimed tasting menu restaurant Contra.

Frenchette is an upscale French bistro in Tribeca. Think of it as an updated version of The Odeon or Balthazar.
Ruffian is a tiny East Village bar with a huge natural wine list and a short menu of really good Mediterranean food.
A sexy Greenwich Village restaurant with an unusual French menu. Your next date night should be at Mimi.
Raoul’s has been a Soho institution since the '70s. If you can’t have a good time at this French bistro, you probably can’t have a good time anywhere.
Maison Yaki in Prospect Heights is where you go to sit on a red leather barstool and eat classic French cooking-inspired yakitori.

Babs is a nice restaurant in Greenwich Village that serves excellent Basque food, but it’s not perfect for everyone.
When it comes to FiDi, Augustine is pretty much as good as it gets. Think Balthazar, but for bankers, and with somewhat better food.
