This bistro situated in the meatpacking district is immensely popular due to its remarkably French atmosphere, fine food and attentive service. There is outdoor seating, and the dining room features tiles on the floor, antique mirrors on the walls and leather banquettes everywhere. A happy bar scene is ongoing in the lounge. Dishes of note include the house pate, onion soup gratinee, oysters on the half shell, roast leg of lamb, and the whole fish of the day. Pastis is owned by Keith McNally of Balthazar fame.
This is yet another example of a hyped up NYC institution...nothing great about the place. Averagre food and average service. It's fun to go with a group especailly if you need a bite to eat very late in the night.
I returned to this french inspired resturant after learning about it on the "Sex and the City" bus tour. There for a late breakfast, the french toast was fantastic! Julianne Moore walked in shortly after I did- so I even got some celebrity sighting time also. Great overall experience. Highly recommended.
Great place! After a short cab ride to the meat packing district we were pleasantly surprised to find Pastis to be everything it was promised to be! Great food, lively atmosphere and very trendy. Fabulous for a night out with friends.
P.S. After dinner head over to the bar across the street...great views of the city!
The fettucini and mushroom pasta was great...the potato cakes were wonderful as well. I devoured the delicious french bread--not to mention that my friend and I were seated right away! (by the door, brrr). But I was impressed by the speed in which we were seated and served our food. Pastis is quite trendy and I observed many outsiders frequently peering in through the curtained windows at the trendy lookers inside the restaurant :)
