Lady of Grand’s Pick of the Week: Brunch at the ‘New’ Le French Diner

As previously reported, we knew Zucco: Le French Diner at 188 Orchard Street has reopened under new ownership. It is now simply “Le French Diner” with Artur, Pierre, and Burcu running the show.
Burcu, previously from The John Dory in the Ace Hotel, is the Chef in front of the small but mighty open kitchen. Their space can get a bit cozy but it’s always been a nice place to hang out if you grab a seat a the bar.
We know the French love their butter and duck fat probably just as much as I do. The combination of thick cut bacon pieces, caramelized shallots, and duck fat fried potatoes swimming in a red wine au jus with poached eggs was well worth the calories (pictured above).
They opened for brunch just last week so prices are subject to change. Dinner is served every night starting at 6pm, and lunch is coming soon.
