La Tarte Flambee

Another French-influenced restaurant, because why not? This Murray Hill restaurant inspired by cuisine served and prepared in Alsace, is an authentic representation of the city’s food. With chefs and owners committed to serving cuisine both approachable and enjoyable, La Tarte Flambee will open up the casual bruncher’s mind to what’s possible beyond french toast and eggs.

Of course, it’s probably best to order the actual inspiration for the restaurant’s name, that is, the tarte flambee. There is an extensive menu that allows you to either build your own or choose between savory or sweet options. The good news is that there’s a flambee for everyone.

If it’s nice out, it’s well worth sitting in the heated patio tent with just enough well-placed light and ambiance to make you think you’ve been transported to Europe. There is also a selection and French and German wines that will really make you question where you are. Calm down; you’re still in New York.

This small, cozy restaurant is good for families and dates. The meal won’t cost you an arm and a leg and La Tarte Flambee is known for authentic french flair.

The space is cramped but the service is excellent. Check it out if you aren’t looking for a place with all of the bells and whistles.
