AOC is a little neighborhood French spot in the West Village. They do classics like benedicts for brunch and coq au vin for dinner, and while the food isn’t going to blow you away, it’s worth knowing about this place for its outdoor dining experience. The garden is a prime spot to eat outside in the summer and look out onto the kind of beautiful West Village apartment buildings that will either leave you feeling inspired (maybe one day you’ll live there) or depressed (you’re never going to live there).
