A restaurant like Pigalle would be fairly unremarkable on Rue Montparnasse. But in New York City, it gives you a rush of lorning for leisurely afternoons in Paris.

Pigalle is true to the traditional Parisian bistro, a place that's intensely casual in both atmosphere but in its ability to turn out great food.

I had Eggs Benedict that were as good as any I've had. The fritadas have Michelle trying to recreate the recipe. But most haunting were the home fries that a day later, still leave a delicious taste in my mouth.

We ate brunch at Pigalle, but the restaurant is open 24 hours. It has a full bar and wine closet. Pigalle is located on 8th Ave. at 48th makes it a good after theater joint with the advantage of reasonable prices (for NY). For NJ folks it's close to Penn station (by cab and subway).

Perhaps the aspect of Pigalle that surprised us most was the excellent service. Unlike most French restaurants who pride themselves in surly unattentive wait-staff, the group at Pigalle was pleasant, prompt and professional from the moment we entered until we left.
