Village Voice's Description

A fascinating French wine list is just one of the lures that might draw you, fish-like, to this neighborhood bistro, just one stop into Queens on the 7 train. An excellent bottle of Cahors washed down appetizers of pruney foie gras terrine, sautéed calamari curiously sided with diced beets, and specials like a beef-cheek ravioli; then we proceeded to a monkfish brochette, beef cheeks in dark gravy, and a duck-breast-and-leg combo hobbled somewhat by fresh pineapple. Though not everything swam, we conferred upon Tournesol a solid B for food and an A for ambience.

    Great little secret French place in Long Island City. Even when full to capacity, it's quiet—a great place for a chill or romantic dinner.

Tips from foursquare

  • The distinctively French brunches here feature croques madames and monsieurs and steak frites. After dining, check out the Manhattan skyline in Gantry State Park.

    Very fun and attractive staff that I've seen dancing in the restaurant late at night. Sit at the bar for dinner and they'll keep your wine glass full just out of habit.

    Escargot and the lamb shank

    In an area some believe lacks culture, Tournesol proves you dead-wrong with an authentic French atmosphere that rivals the Left Bank.

    Escargot sauce is to die for. If pig ears are a special appetizer, GET THEM!!!
