If you are occasionally nostalgic for the days when there was no such thing as fusion cuisine, as I am, this is the place for you. We had an excellent meal of their specialty, duck, and soft-shelled crab. We had a charming and efficient young French waitress. But I specifically want to mention the kindness of Madame who held our reservation on a Saturday night, when we called and explained that we had been sitting in traffic at the George Washington Bridge for over an hour. It had been such an awful day that I almost teared up when she said that she would hold our table until we arrived, whenever that was. I haven't lived in New York for many years, but she made me love it all over again!
