Chez Napolean at 365 West 50th street is a classic French restaurant in the theater district. The decor is homey and reminds me of a grandma’s dining room. Completed jigsaw puzzles adorn the walls! The food is delicious, escargot, leeks in butter, and duck l’orange just to name a few dishes I have enjoyed over the years. Often our guests at Ivy Terrace bed and breakfast are seeing a show and want to eat in the area. The cozy French ambiance and reasonable prices make this one of the few places I would recommend in the theater district. Service is quick, attentive and often humorous. The legendary chef is Grand-Mere Marguerite and she is in her late eighties! This is family owned and run establishment which is another reason I love it! Of course, make a reservation, and don’t expect to “see and be seen” but do plan on an evening of authentic French cuisine.
