Village Voice's Description
Though the name suggests a Portuguese place, Fada is a French bistro specializing in the vegetable-intensive provender of Provence. The dining room effects a raffish air, and the menu runs from shareable combination plates called assiettes to refreshing salads, such as a salade frisÃ©e that features smoked duck breast in addition to lardoons, to main courses voluminous enough to stand alone as your evening meal. Recommended entrÃ©es (some are seasonal): steak frites featuring a thin sirloin sided with mounds of glistening fries, and specials like an aioli garni of cod and homemade mayonnaise accompanied by legions of steamed vegetables and a handful of snails. Open for breakfast on the weekend.
Tips from foursquare
Girls happened here. "She's writing an e-book!" Vomit your cocktails in the trees outside and channel Hannah after she was offered a career-making e-book deal here.
Try the Oeufs Fada, they've been at the top if my list for years.
Great simple authentic, reasonably priced french food with charm. Live music during the summers a major plus.
Great atmosphere. Great food. Come on Fridays when they have live jazz.
+1 for the Oeufs Fada. Try to get a seat in the garden when the weather's nice.
