French
In the south of France, more precisely in Provence, a cabanon represents an authentic cuisine, usually located in a house's garden, where all the mothers and grandmothers used to cook regional specialties for the entire family and anybody lucky enough to be around at the right place at the right time.

The door was always open. Since we had the chance to witness it in our childhood, we wanted to recreate this environment with the same welcoming spirit. So we decided to name our place "OCabanon".

“Cave à Manger”, literally means “Cellar to Eat”. In fact, the idea is to bring a nice pairing between wine and food in a cosy place.

We want our “Cave à Manger” to be a friendly destination, where anybody can discover love stories between wine and food, share and gossip around a good bottle.

I stumbled across this restaurant when I Googled. Glad I did.

Too much food!

Asparagus soup- delish and served hot too.

Tapas for 1 was way too much.

Red snapper was fish of day. Well prepared. Could only eat half.

Wonderful service.

Quaint. Quiet.

I liked the La Boutique too.

What a find! Small, intimate in the back, quiet with impeccable service. And the food was excellent. We had the Beet Salad, nearly a meal in itself, and the Filet Mignon, done to perfection. Absolutely no complaints. We will be back.!

A lovely late night supper and, while not quiet, it was FAR QUIETER THAN ANYWHERE ELSE we tried to eat in Chelsea or the Village. Food and service were both superb. Both showed some originality, not just the popular stuff.
A treat.

A wonderful surprise in Chelsie!
We have the hamburguer, the Cassoulet and the Risoto. The three plates were very good. The French Wine from tha Lanquedoc, suggested by the waiter, perfectly matches the plates. Finally, a delicious apple tart as dessert. Prices are quite reasonable considering NYC

The reason we chose this restaurant was for the cassoulet. They have won awards for the best in NYC for this dish. Also, the Tarte Tartin was exceptional - the owner's grandmother's recipe - delicious! There is also a shop connected to the restaurant selling authentic French condiments and merchandise.

I took 5 friends for lunch and they were all delighted. I had been the before. The food and presentations were very good.

I didn't give a 5 star review because of the limited menu options.

We had a pre-concert dinner with friends, this restaurant is close to Madison Square Garden. There aren’t many options in the area, for a nice quiet restaurant with good food.
Everything was great, food, ambience and service. Better than the concert.
We’ll recommend this restaurant to all our friends

Service wasn't anything special, but the place is nice and the food was good. Had a pate that was delicious. The soup (a carrot-coconut) got solid marks from one of the members of our party. Drinks were good but took a LONG time. It wasn't super-busy, but the bartender may have been a bit overwhelmed. I'd recommend the place if the location is convenient. I wouldn't go too far out of my way, though, with so many tremendous choices in Manhattan.

I came here for lunch with my friends. I had today’s special which includes salad, risotto with shrimp and juice. I got juice instead of wine so it was a bit cheaper than the regular price.
Their food was delicious and the waitress was super nice and friendly. I’ll definitely come back again.
