Village Voice's Description
Although the theme at this West Village wine bar is the French Revolution, the food is pretty straightforward. Share a lovely snack of croque mademoiselles or smoky chicken croquettes with hot, milky insides, as you search for the (often aimless) servers to bring you something sparkling. Diners looking for a more lush experience can nibble on straight-from-the-oven escargots in hot, garlicky butter with a side of Parmesan-dusted french fries. This cozy neighborhood spot welcomes groups of women catching up over a glass of wine and chic older couples looking to share their travel stories. And while nothing about the wine bar is revolutionary, Sel et Gras is a nice spot to have a drink with friends.
Tips from foursquare
Hasn't taken off yet but legit little French joint in the heart of restaurant row. Great foie gras, tartares, and steak au poivre
Neighborhood gem. Brunch it up with a Croque Madame and some Parmesan-garlic fries.
An excellent happy hour from 5-7pm everyday, with selected wines going for $6 a glass! Generous pours, too.
Coq au vin wings et l'escargot...and That comes from someone who lived in burgundy for a year.
Definitely check this place out! Food is awesome!
