Chez Napoleon

212-265-6980  •  $$$
ADDRESS: 365 W 50th St, (bet 8th and 9th Aves), New York, NY 10019
CUISINE: French, Bistro
FEATURES: Full Bar, Handicap Access, Smoke Free
DESCRIPTION
About as old-school French as they come, Chez Napoleon has been a favorite among theater-goers and Francophiles since 1960. Brittany-born Chef Marguerite Bruno (known simply as Grand-Mere) delivers a menu of bistro classics such as moules Napoleon, confit de canard and bouillabaisse. 
"Entrées are served out of silver chafing dishes by career waitstaff and the decor tends toward ornate woodwork and eccentric murals of Napoleon. The braised wild boar stew in red wine sauce is fantastic, as is the cherries jubilee, flambéed tableside."
The Village Voice: Critics' Pick

Zagat: 4.1 food rating (very good to excellent)
ADDITIONAL DETAILS
Reservations suggested. Full bar. Serving lunch Mon-Fri, dinner Mon-Sat. Closed Sun.
FROM THE RESTAURANT
Known simply as the most authentic French restaurant in New York City, Chez Napoléon has been a staple in the Theatre District since 1960 and has been family-run ever since! Seating approximately 40 people, our quiet, little restaurant is a favorite to New Yorkers and visitors alike for its 'tucked away' atmosphere and its authentic French dining menu prepared by the Bruno family's matriarch, familiarly known as 'Grand-mere' Marguerite. Her award-winning cooking style is a testament to hearty, classic French cuisine without fancy decor or stacked flavors that many other kitchens pass off as today's French cuisine.
