76 Main St.
Cold Spring, NY
The chef and owner, Pascal Graff, is from Alsace, and evidently has sufficient Gallic joie de vivre to have imbued his brasserie with some of it. It’s just like the little family-run places you find in obscure villages all over the French countryside, where the welcome is warm and the simple food is well made and fairly priced.The traditional French menu includes all the favorites: escargots, goat cheese tart, bouillabaisse, steak frites, and such.
