Oh, gay Par-ee. Nothing quite like it, especially in the springtime, but if you’re ever in the mood for escargots or mousse au chocolat, there’s a little piece of France right here in midtown. Welcome to Les Sans Culottes; a cozy, unpretentious spot on 46th street with excellent French cuisine and loads of New York charm. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly on a weeknight evening and seated at a festive table covered with a red and white gingham table cloth. While the menu had many items that were appealing, the choice for me was a no-brainer as I opted for the complete dinner special ($21.95), while a few sampled the a la carte menu. {Note to the reader: A similar complete lunch menu is offered as well--a remarkable deal for a matinee--all for the low, low price of $12.95}. Appetizers that we tasted from our friends plates were the snails (quite good) and the satisfying yet delicate quiche Lorraine. The complete dinner meal began with platter of vegetables, fresh warm bread, sausages and a pate that was complimented by a carafe of Muscadet ($17) which two of us happily shared. Next up for myself was the rough choice; picking an entrée. Flank Steak with a shallot sauce was my poison, and lamb chops for my dinner companion. Both of us were more than content with our choices and just when I thought I couldn’t shove another piece of pain du burre in my mouth, I heard myself ordering the Crème Brulee. Oh la-la! The crunch of the bronzed coating as I plunged my spoon through the crispy topping gave me that sugar high I needed to get me out the door.
