Bar Bête is NYC’s latest restaurant serving roast chicken on marble tables beneath large hanging globe lights. But this trendy Cobble Hill spot has more to offer than the possibility of a Bon Appetit staff member sighting. It’s where you should absolutely have dinner with a date in the area. The simple reason being, they serve thoughtful and delicious French food (like a peekytoe crab omelette) that makes ordering the roast chicken seem about as inspiring as proposing to someone at a Yankees game. So don’t write it off as just another trendy roast chicken restaurant.
