Le Parisien is the go-to neighborhood bistrot for Murray Hill, offering classic French food like steak frites, escargots and moules marinieres, paired with a well-edited list of french wines.
Chef Johnathan Masse brings his expert knowledge of comfort food, having most recently served as sous chef at the Waverly Inn, and also for Chef Jonathan Waxman of Barbuto. Along with owner Christian Merand, formerly of Jean-Claude in Soho, they have created a restaurant that focuses on serving consistently great traditional food with a lively and unmistakeably French atmosphere.

Also open daily for lunch and brunch on weekends.

Food was delicious -- sat outdoors and enjoyed it. Waiter seemed a bit rushed, not very conversational. A little stiff. My wife's portion bistro steak was great, yet I got the duck special and it was very tiny - 2 lil pieces that could be eaten in a few bites, with spinach and some puree...very disappointed for the price of it - would hardly constitute an appetizer.

Always amazing, the best restaurant in the neighborhood. Isabella takes amazing care of all her guests, the mussels, the steak frites, the Gigondas the roast chicken, it's all fantastic. Feels like you are back in France.

Met a friend for a Sunday brunch here. They have outdoors seating w/ table hand sanitizers. On a hot day it might be too warm but otherwise great sidewalk seating. The pre fix brunch menu items at 18$ come with a coffee (sadly they don’t carry decaf ). The food was amazing. We both had mushroom omelette with Asiago cheese that same with a mini side of greens and fries. The rest of the menu looked great too.

Not our first time at Le Parisien, I was there a week prior. Had to introduce our friends to this wonderful find in Kipps Bay area of NYC.

Food, Service and just general friendliness as usual. We will be there again and again

It was my husband’s Birthday. We love this place, small and intimate and safe with dividers between the tables. They always have great specials beside the main menu. French wines are great! We bring all our friends here too. There is outside seating also which is great.

We live in the neighborhood and used to come here twice a month, and also for celebrations like birthdays and New Year's Eve. We love this place-- classic French cuisine, good service and wines, quiet ambience. Since they've re-opened, we're here at least once at month -- for the best brunch deal in town! Also the best steak frites in town!

Strongly recommended by a friend. Exceeded our expectations. Our experience was like a traditional Parisienne bistro both menu and ambiance even with Covid barriers in place. Price point was in expensive for Manhattan as was wine list. Will be back on next trip to NYC.
