Cafe des Artistes


You wanna really impress a date? Take her to this joint, where even the biggest schnook can feel like somebody. A beautiful break from the pricey Mid-town suit bullshit, jackets are required, but attitude is not. Gone are the anorexic waitresses, actor/waiters and breadguys who could still get into cooler clubs than you — instead, this place is all class with an actual interest in good old fashion food. [MF]
