Quaint, and Parisian in atmosphere and setting. It's small, but mighty. The steak frites were really good - well prepared with a delicious sauce. Very good service and good wines by the glass. We would return.

We travel quite a bit and thus know something about Parisian bistros. This unassuming place in the East 30's just nailed it. Smallish room, simply decorated. Gracious service. Outstanding food. Started with carrot/ginger soup. With the first spoonful, we felt we were in Paris. Went...More

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.
