I had walked by Jules Bistro, the French bistro on St. Marks Place, for years, hearing their nighly jazz, yet never once did I walk in. That all changed two weeks ago, when I went on a culinary adventure with my sister (the NYC Foodette) and her fiancé, and boy was I happy I finally went in. Jules Bistro is a fantastic, great, and wonderful place! With great jazz and great French bistro fare, there is a lot to love about this joint.
Clams in a white wine and garlic sauce were absolutely fabulous. An addictive bowl of joy.
Braised duck leg ($21.95) with sausages, bacon & pig trotters, buttery vegetables & steamed fingerling potato, was also terrific! Every piece of meat was perfectly cooked, and beyond tasty. I loved this dish.
So stop by Jules Bistro in the East Village. Have a glass or two of wine, feast on some great grub, and listen to some excellent jazz. It'll be a truly magical evening.
