Cafe D’Alsace in the east 80s looks like other French bistros in this city. It’s feels both formal and European, with big windows everywhere and wicker chairs on the sidewalk. But the Alsatian food they make here isn’t something you’ll find at most restaurants in that category. From a big vat of potatoes with homemade sauerkraut, to sausages and a casserole with lamb and oxtail, there’s a ton of German-French dishes here you may have never tried before. And if you’re at all interested, this place has one of the better imported beer lists we’ve seen in any restaurant in NYC.
