Included In

On our first visit to La Goulue, we saw the following: a very famous 86-year-old writer, a small dog, and a woman someone at our table thought was Barbara Walters (it wasn’t). That should tell you a bit about what you need to know about La Goulue: it’s an older crowd, and it’s about as uptown-y as you can get. The restaurant was closed for about eight years, and is now open in a different location on 61st Street, and what’s also worth knowing about this new reboot of a classic French bistro is that the food is very good. The menu includes things like a great steak tartare, fresh salads, and well-executed grilled fish. It’s not going to be for everyone, but it is a nice option for an upscale meal near Central Park.
