Best French NYC

Augustine - Setting the Parisian Bar
February 14, 2018
By , Galavante Editor

Why we like it:  Augustine is a quintessential example of New York simply doing it better. A traditional French brasserie, Augustine is what many Parisian restaurants aspire to become. Located in the Beekman Hotel, it’s managed to stay hot since the day it opened in the Financial District. Augustine is an all-day into evening affair, attracting crowds to an area that was once a ghost town when the sun went down. We were first enticed by Augustine’s hopping vibe, but the excellent food and cocktails keep bringing us back.

What to order:  To start, the soufflé au fromage is absolutely worth the wait.  And since you’re kickin’ it old school French, the steak frites and the rotisserie chicken are so French it hurts. The food won’t win a Michelin star, but you’ll crave their food enough to become a regular.
