Maison Harlem

French in Harlem & Upper Manhattan

Run by two French amis, this swinging little bar-bistro is like a second home for locals, who drop in at all hours to nibble on French toast, slurp onion soup, or loosen their belts over slow-cooked duck-leg confit. For the full effervescent effect, head here on weekends when DJs and wine-fueled merriment may just lead to dancing.
