Les Halles

Culinary bad boy Anthony Bourdain's orignal New York outpost, Les Halles, is a busy cheerful restaurant specializing in the straight forward fare of French bistros. Not particularly inventive (although when it first opened there were few like it in the states) but unpretentious and executed with finesse.
The menu features onion soup, classic terrines, and the specialty -- steak frites. I had to order the dish what many claim are the city's best fries.
Reliable and something for everyone, that's Les Halles. Feeding the city like it's Paris market name sake once did.
