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.

    This is the real McCoy, a true French bistro. The food is excellent, the paillard and its sauce, made with fresh herbs and aromatics, could not be better -- anywhere. And the Floating Island -- a classic, classically made here. Brilliant!

    The food is great. We enjoyed the roast chicken and the steak. Creme brulee was also delicious. The friends we invited were very satisfied. We stay in NYC a few weekends a month and this place is only a 5 min walk from our apartment so we will be repeat customers.

    The onion soup was great but the mussel special was under par; small, smelly, chewy mussels, they were probably less than fresh. I didn’t finish it. The tarte tatin was good. I could give it another try if I was close by but I wouldn’t get out of my way to get there.

    Been meaning to get here for quite some time and very glad I did. It was lovely, the food was really good and the service was terrific. A bit loud since we sat outside but happy that was an option. In this day and time, the brunch was very well priced, there was something for everyone on the menu and it was all beautifully presented. We both had omelettes--mushroom and asiago and spinach and goat cheese. YUM!! One of the people at the next table had the french toast and said it was the best he'd ever had. Can recommend highly. We'll be back!! You should go, too!

    We always enjoy coming here for authentic French cuisine. The salade parisien is amazing, as are their specials. We had their cod special and it was wonderful. I always enjoy the moules dijonnaise, and if you enjoy escargot, those are good as well. Service is always friendly, and outdoor tables are available also.

    What a wonderful and charming bistro, which perfectly encapsulated the meaning of that word. The staff was great (and French, which is always nice), as was the food. I had the roasted chicken and the crème brûlée. I could have licked the plate the food was so délicieux. It’s a small menu which I liked, but a few more appetizer options would have been good. If you can, snag the 2 seat table between the bar and the window. It’s an ideal spot to enjoy your meal.

    Cute little spot with good food and service. Could probably use a deep cleaning - floors and where walls meet floors…unfortunately we ended up sitting next to a foursome where one man was talking really loud and over powered our table and also a woman at same table was coughing a lot -especially right when our food came and we were really close to this table. I wish she would have gone outside to finally clear her throat! But really it was just bad luck sitting next to them- nothing that the restaurant could have helped with. This is my second time eating there and had a wonderful experience then. I would go back but try to be selective on where I sit as it’s super small inside, which is part of the charm!

    We went to Le Parisien for a Sunday brunch and sat outside under an umbrella's shade. The food was varied and reasonably priced and we felt unrushed. We liked the omelets and the French toast. If you know French, the pleasure will even be greater, but exchanges in English are accepted.

    This is such a lovely restaurant. It's very easy to get to from Grand Central and it is the gem of its neighborhood. Our server Isabelle was efficient and friendly (without being over-friendly). Most importantly, the food is outstanding! I was with two women who are foodie-snobs and they agreed. Thank you for bringing us to a local neighborhood restaurant in Paris for one night in Manhattan. Sincerely, Cathie
