Well, the frogs are infinitely more popular. At least this is how it seems on warm spring and summer nights when Le Jardin’s green garden dining experience includes the prattle of well-dressed young New Yorkers and the croaks of toads. That being said, the frog motif is rather charming (particularly as expressed in the green glass frog candle holders) and seems to add a certain degree of levity to an often "all-business" clientele. As the sun sets, the candles illuminate the grape vines the swim around the space, making for a rather special dining experience. Nonetheless, the Parisian interior seats a considerable number of people; here is where you are likely to find less pretension and more serious food consumption. Charming framed prints of flowers and a molded ceiling add a country kitchen feel to the room.
The mainstays of the French bistro menu are here: steak and frites, salmon, and duck. Regularly, the menu features a delicious swordfish or sea bass. The tuna tartar is recommended. All meals are served with hardy sides dishes: spinach, carrots and potatoes. For starters, the arugola and rochefort cheese salad is a personal favorite.
