Authentic, savory, seasonal Provencal bistro dishes. Warm and welcoming service from familiar faces. A cozy atmosphere in a jewel box of a dining room. These are the reasons why I have come back to Le Gigot again and again over the years.
The restaurant is located on Cornelia Street in the West Village, close to cafes and lots of shopping (including Book Book and Murray's Cheese on Bleeker Street). Cornelia is a quiet nook of a street in a busy neighborhood.
Walk through the doors of Le Gigot, take a seat at the zinc bar or one of the velvet banquettes, and order a glass of wine. Immediate relaxation. It is a wonderful space for a quiet romantic dinner or a small family get-together, and the food is consistently excellent. Oysters, gigot d'agneau (leg of lamb), boeuf bourguignon, crab cakes, steak au poivre—it's all good!
