Read a great article, Long Live The Paris Cafe from Tracy Kaler, a NY lifestyle blogger who writes about the best NY has to offer.

Lovely decor, good non pushy servers. Simple but filling food and very well priced. In short I loved it, came here for brunch, will be back again soon. I had the country eggs, my partner had the pancakes. Highly recommend for what it is.

I just sponsored a late afternoon/early evening casual gathering of 30+ people in the Paris Café's main bar space, to celebrate a special event in the career of my sig other. (OK, his retirement!) I wanted a great place near his former place of work, so he suggested this venue. What a fantastic choice. From my first inquiry by phone, the staff was totally understanding and helpful. At the event itself, Annette, Dermot (sp?), Kathleen and Peter could not have been more warmly welcoming, helpful, attentive and kind. Professional in the best way.

The space itself was replete with charm: gorgeous antique wooden bar, comfy wooden stools with backs, tile floor, high ceiling, vintage corner entryway. All restored, I learned, after the place was devastated by Sandy. The appetizers we ordered — platters of wings and sliders — were delicious and appealingly presented. We ran a tab at the bar and Annette was totally understanding and effective in helping me keep to my budget.

What a gem of a place. Thank you, everybody! So great to know that you are there. I look forward to the next time.

Such a great place to have brunch on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Waitstaff was super sweet, and the food was phenomenal. Don't be worried about the prices my friends the brunch menu comes with a complementary mimosa, you soon shall not care.

My not-boss and I used to venture here for lunches so I could complain about insurance in privacy. Some things need not be said in the workplace...

The Paris Cafe is historical and she really appreciated telling me about the history of it - I really didn't care at the time, I was cranky. I mean, I am always cranky, read my reviews.

It is an older building, like Fraunces Tavern, and I don't think that it is as well done as far as ambiance. You don't feel like you are swept back into the 1800s. You don't feel like a giant in a small space like with some of the other historical buildings in the city. But you can appreciate how times have changed.

As far as food, I like their salads. The Wild Mushroom Salad without the goat cheese (sorry, not a fan of goat cheese) is well done. Add chicken and you are priced around the same as some of the salad shops for a sit down lunch in a nicer restaurant that is semi-private to complain to your not-boss.

I would return and recommend for a more intimate business lunch.
