Paris comes to Chambers Street

07/14/2014

Can’t make it to Paris this summer? If not, you can head to 94 Chambers Street. Billed as New York’s “first Parisian neo-bistro,” Racines is an elegant wine bar and restaurant offering fresh, seasonal cuisine from a Michelin-starred chef.  “When it comes to food, we have a simple philosophy: ingredients are the stars,” the website says. Try the red snapper with octopus, mussels and sauce bourride. Or the hanger Steak with eggplant, fava Beans, shishito and cumin Jus. Don’t forget “un verre de vin” — the wine list features natural, organic, and biodynamic wines from small French growers.
