Everything's right at this petite West Village Francophile's dream bistro where meticulously prepared Provençal dishes come via a superb staff; granted, seating's tight and tabs are pricey, but it's hard to beat when you seek a romantic dinner for two.

A tiny bistro brightens up Greenwich Village

... a fabulous Greenwich Village bôite called Le Gigot, which,
to my perennially Paris-hungry sensibility, is the best French bistro the city has seen in a long time.

There's an embarrassment of main-course riches at Le Gigot, served alongside an extraordinary repertoire of side dishes.
If it's fish you're after, you may well not find a better bouillabaisse in the U.S. or even in the south of France. Ndiaye's upscale, medium-thick version is based on a shellfish stock so profound you won't need the accompanying rouille or grated Gruyere. It swims with succulent hunks of fish and tender crustaceans and bivalves. Two other great seafood dishes are built around grill-licked salmon and tuna.

...there's plenty of great red-wine food, including the boeuf bourguignon of your dreams: tender chunks of beef enrobed
in deep, glossy, wine-kissed sauce.

There is one sauced meat dish, though the restaurant's namesake that keeps me coming back for more: the Pernod-flambéed gigot d'agneau aux flageolets, featuring the startling paradox of medium-rare leg of lamb with long-cooked flavor.

This is my second visit to this restaurant and this time I came with four friends. Two people had the Artic char and three people had the three cuts of lamb. Everything was delicious, well prepared, and original. I have decided to take my family here. This has become one of my favorite restaurants. By the way, the waitstaff was outstanding and welcoming.
