Petit Poulet, a Parisian Bistro in New York

Petit-Poulet-NYC

I was in New York for Thanksgiving Day and wanted to find a restaurant where I can eat the traditional Thanksgiving food. After doing a bit of research, I decided to have dinner at a French restaurant. It's called the Petit Poulet (Little Chicken).
It might seem odd to have dinner at a French restaurant for Thanksgiving day, but really I don’t regret it. Dinner was excellent, this place is highly recommended.

How is the Petit Poulet?

Petit Poulet is located near Herald Square. It is on the ground floor of the Radisson Martinique, but it has its own front entrance from the street.
The hotel is a historic landmark in New York, however, the hotel opened recently in 2012.
This restaurant seems to be a Parisian bistro. It is not very large but it’s beautifully decorated. The walls are made out of wood elements, and the roof is a metal stamping.

Some tables have chairs or benches, and they have a bar you can sit at facing the kitchen where you can watch the chefs work.

How is the atmosphere of the restaurant?

It is a very nice restaurant, the music is not very loud, and it’s a pretty quiet place.

What is the clientele at Petit Poulet?

That night it was Thanksgiving and usually everyone is having dinner at home with their families. I do not think the clients that were there were regulars who often go to Petit Poulet. So tonight it had more tourists than New Yorkers 🙂

The entree was simple (vegetables or salad) could not pass on the turkey 😀 the cooking was perfect, the turkey was delicious, with gravy (prepared as thick based turkey gravy), cranberry chutney, sweet potatoes and beans.

How is the service?

There is nothing bad to say about the quality of service. The waiter who greeted us was very professional, dressed real well. He explained all the dishes and recommended us a California wine. I was able to perfectly understand his explanations because he was from Barcelona! Long time working in New York now, but speaks Catalan, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French ... and English)
