36. Bistro 7
It’s one of the city’s last good secrets, Bistro 7. Although why a cozy little BYO with consistently wonderful food would still be a secret is beyond us. The service can be a little weird sometimes (example: the server who wandered off, mid-spiel, to pet a pretty dog out on the sidewalk), but that’s neither unusual in this town nor enough of an issue to detract from the creative “modern French” menu, with stars like a salted terrine made of red and yellow beets, a brioche-and-truffle-stuffed roast chicken, and the classic tarte tatin with maple syrup crème brûlée. A date-night no-brainer.
Don’t miss: The escargots stewed in a fennel Pernod cream—decadent enough to feel French and unfussy enough to be likeable.
