It's only right to have a litte burlesque at a French bistro and lounge. The atmosphere at Affaire in the East Village is intimate—furnished with comfy couches, antiques, and paintings. They've got brunch and dinner covered, along with various cocktails, beer, and wine. If you happen to use the bathroom there, you can say #mysoapisfromparis since you are getting your money's worth of French culture without having to leave NY.
