Fodor's Expert Review Blanchette

$$ Soho French

French tapas may sound sacrilegious, but Gallic gem Blanchette hits the spot at this family-run hipster bistro where jazzy French sounds complement the charming bare-brick and oak table candlelit interior. Visually feast on the Paris flea market bric-a-brac and then order a host of small plates to share, like the crispy frogs' legs and truffle saucisson (sausage) or baked scallops with Café de Paris sauce. The cramped tables can be a little intimate, but desserts like chocolate tart, tonka bean syrup, and macerated cherries are a fitting Left Bank-style finale.
