A Manhattan counterpart to Rest Star Inc.’s flagship Huntington restaurant of the same name, Manhattan’s Bistro Cassis brings the rich, refined flavors of Paris to the upper west side. A humble 50 seat eatery which eschews pretense in favor of coziness, Bistro Cassis has been serving the Manhattan community for over fifteen years.
Its Gallic interior transports patrons to Parisian streets, where authentic art work adorns the walls, followed up by authentic dishes.
Their extensive selection of French wines, carefully curated by brothers Jason and Eric Machado, compliments their cuisine in true French fashion. Diners have shown their approval, making Bistro Cassis one of the highest rated Upper West Side restaurants on Yelp and Zagat.
Bistro Cassis continues to be a major player in the upper west side, even as the New York restaurant scene drastically shifts year after year. Time Our New York says about the food, “A marinated rack of lamb is served with a simple yet satisfying accompaniment of thinly sliced red potatoes, and fresh herbs are generously strewn over salads and steak frites alike. For dessert, you can’t go wrong with the classic crêpes suzette.”
For this upper west side gem, the pretentiousness associated with fine dining and French restaurants disappears and what’s left is a warm, inviting atmosphere and great French cooking.
