Manhattan’s most pleasant new restaurant find is this 45-seat restaurant, *Paname, named after a nickname for Paris. The executive chef/owner Bernard Ros—had closed the popular *Meli Melo following a fire in 2011. He makes his return to Midtown East with this casual and upscale French bistro. The kitchen turns out first rate Gallic classics such as plump escargots de Bourgogne, terrific mussels à la Marinière and a Provençal seafood bouillabaisse drizzled with garlic aioli that will make you think you are in France.
The veal chop is deliciously tender and beautifully sauced and all seafood is fresh and as good as it gets. Good European wines are available by the glass as well as the bottle, and beer choices include standards like Stella Artois and Heineken. There are white-clothed banquet, topped with butcher paper and comfortable tables. The walls are hang with Art Deco mirrors and large Erté-inspired paintings done by Parisian Beaux Arts students And oh what lovely vases of flowers..Don’t fail to sample the excellent desserts, such as crepes, doused with Grand Marnier liqueur. Paname would be a welcome addition to any neighborhood and If Mr. Ros can hold the prices.
it may be the best value in upscale French cuisine on the east Side.
