Village Voice's Description
Joseph Leonard, representing the first names of proprietor Gabriel Stuhlman"s grandfathers, also represents the triumphal return of the small neighborhood bistro, where the food is mainly French in outlook. There"s a bang-up brandade, decorated with pepper marmalade, and a perfect frisee salad with lardons and egg, deconstructed but still unmistakably French. For the amorous, there"s a raw oyster service with mignonette. Best entrée we"ve tasted there so far is artic char seared in brown butter, or, for lighter diners, a mushroom omelet. The view out the window also makes this place an instant West Village classic.
