Bar Tabac

Look for the vertical, maroon-and-white sign of a motorcyclist to find this French bistro. Brothers Christophe and Jacques Forgeois opened Bar Tabac in February 2001 with a dinner menu featuring shell steak, tuna steak, salmon, lamb shank, “moules mariniere” (mussels) and more. Top it off with one of Chef Leandro Villanueva’s “diet busters”: creme brulee or chocolate and raspberry mousse cake. Open into the early morning hours, Bar Tabac is a haven for late-night noshers. They’re also open for lunch and weekend brunch, 10 am to 4 pm, with a drink menu of refreshing tonics like the Monaco (grenadine, Sprite and beer) or Tango (grenadine and beer). Enjoy live music during their weekend brunch as well as Monday through Thursday. Sidewalk seating available, weather permitting. Open daily for lunch and dinner. Hours: Monday and Tuesday 11:00am- 12:00am, Wednesday and Thursday 11:00am- 1:00am, Friday through Sunday 11:00am- 1:00am.
