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.

The food was outstanding and so was the service. The staff was very attentive and friendly. The duck confit and seafood salad were amazing. I tasted the beef bourguignon and it was also amazing. The coffee and desserts were incredible. Will definitely go back.

Fantastic and authentic bistro food. The cassoulet was as good as in France.
