When you're in Brooklyn Heights, but you need a restaurant that looks like a cafe in Williamsburg or the West Village, Chez Moi has you covered. Come here for a reasonably priced steak frites and some frog legs (if you’re feeling adventurous). It’s a good place to bring a date, and it’s a good place to convince a date that you’re the sort of person who eats frog legs. Vibes are romantic, but you could always just sit at the bar by yourself and have a burger with foie gras.
