About the restaurant
The Supper Club By Le Petit Parisien is a collaboration between Le Petit Parisien and Chef Josh Newman, offering unique seasonal menus.

At Supper Club, we believe in offering something truly unique and exciting to our guests. Breaking away from the conventional approach, we have crafted a carefully curated menu that showcases two or three exquisite entrees and sides.

What sets us apart is that our menu evolves every few days, reflecting the bounties of each season and emphasizing the use of fresh, locally sourced ingredients.

Murray Hill
About the restaurant
Le Parisien is the go-to neighborhood bistrot for Murray Hill, offering classic French food like steak frites, escargots and moules marinieres, paired with a well-edited list of french wines.
Chef Johnathan Masse brings his expert knowledge of comfort food, having most recently served as sous chef at the Waverly Inn, and also for Chef Jonathan Waxman of Barbuto. Along with owner Christian Merand, formerly of Jean-Claude in Soho, they have created a restaurant that focuses on serving consistently great traditional food with a lively and unmistakeably French atmosphere.

Also open daily for lunch and brunch on weekends.

About the restaurant
Intimate bar and beautiful lounge lead to unique restaurant with an open garden.

The subtly lit French oak paneled bar greets you with booth banquettes and
tables amenable to serve Jacques’ Bar Menu, all day.

The Club Room: its coffered ceilings and fireplace creates familiarity in the comfort of a warm elegant home.

Both the lounge and the bar menus offer spontaneously prepared French delicacies, savory and sweet with distinct Mediterranean and Moroccan influence.

“Majorelle” restaurant: its vaulted ceiling, marble columns, and trellised garden with up-lighted fountains set the stage for fine French Cuisine and Service in an atmosphere of harmony and luxury for all the senses.

About the restaurant
Winner Best Restaurant in March 2018!

Opened in 1980, La Ripaille is one of the oldest restaurants in West Village. Some of the regulars have been coming for as long as 25 years. We want everyone to feel welcome here, whether it’s the celebrities who frequent, the children for whom we provide games & crayons, or the people who live in the Village.

The owner, Alain Laurent, is integral in the day-to-day processes of La Ripaille. He daily scours the market for the freshest produce, often choosing the day’s specials based on his finds. This keeps the specials seasonal & unique. He decorates the ever changing wine list with the best wines available. The restaurant itself is beautiful, with a terrace for the summer & a fireplace in the back for the winter. The candlelit tables light up French posters and paintings & fresh flowers decorate each table. For a taste of history and delicious French cuisine, visit La Ripaille. We have a seat just for you.

Had another outstanding meal at Bistro Vendome a few days ago. Excellent food and service. Dover sole is outstanding. Early evening on the outside terrace is the place to be. We kinda overstayed our 2 hour window but they were very nice about it. Owner is so personable and welcoming. We live in the neighborhood so this is our reliable French restaurant. There are other options but this is the best.
