Le Charlot is casual, but you’ll probably see someone wearing fur here. Or, if it’s warm out, there might be a sweater draped around someone’s shoulders, yacht-club style. This is a small, slightly pricey French bistro on the UES that’s a decent option for the neighborhood, in part because your server might have a French accent.
