Open on the Upper West Side for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, Le Monde offers a world of dishes for the glory of France. From escargot to poisson to bouillabaisse (at least on Sundays), to pommes frites and legumes , Le Monde has it covered for all things French. The service could be better, but that's part of the Francophone experience. Le Monde houses a large space and caters to large groups if needed. Brunch easily gets packed, and the long wooden bar is a nice space for a pre-dinner drink. Brush up on your Franglais and enjoy!
Le Monde is one of 7 restaurants called Tour de France (http://www.tourdefrancenyc.com/) and is supposed to specialize in Cuisine of the Loire Valley. I had my first l'escargot here, which was quite delicious in rich buttery sauce. Only complaint I have is that I felt the service was little lacking.
Living nearby this steady French spot, we have always found it quite good. Though we are not huge fans of the more frenchy-french fare, our friends who have tried it do like it. There is something on the menu for anyone - e.g. the various burgers (vege, turkey, beef) are all outstanding, as is the mushroom-infused ravioi.
Weekend brunch under the sun at a sidewalk table is optimal, though often lines form around 10am, as the wait to snag a good table for the 10:30am opening heats up. Enjoyable people-watching available along this western strip of upper Broadway.
Try the hard cider, comes in a large bottle. Also, many good belgian beers to be had. Lots of way to enjoy this place - try it out.
I have never been disappointed,they even have a sample fragrance of a popular brand( Cool water) in the restroom.I guess they want everyone to smell nice while they are eating. The service was great and the decor day or night is wonderful. I enjoyed thoroughly almost everything on their menu . The desserts are delicious as well. This is a place I will continue to bring my friends.
