Steak Frites

Other spots serve standout variations on the Gallic classic, but no place captures the “mais oui” brasserie quintessence of steak with pommes frites like L’ASSIETTE on Melrose. Exceptionally tender from its sous vide preparation, the grass-fed culotte cut comes in two helpings to keep the meat and fries hot and crisp, respectively, as well as to give diners a second chance to experience the Platonic ideal of béarnaise as both dipping sauce and gateway to unalloyed happiness.
