Millesime Brasserie, New York City
Substitute the Seine for the Hudson, and you could be in a Left Bank brasserie; Millesime’s ornate crown moldings and red banquettes hearken back to those 1920s Hemingway haunts. Even the cocktail menu is a trip through French history, with appearances from Coco Chanel, Honoré de Balzac, and Napoleon (listed under Short and Potent). Michelin-starred chef Laurent Manrique oversees this high-energy establishment, where guests return for the enormous shareable seafood platters as well as staples like steak frites and hearty brasserie food. millesimenyc.com
