A Soft, Romantic Night Out In Park Slope with French Food & Free Popcorn
Named for the gust of wind that blows from France to the Mediterranean, the cuisine at Le Mistral aims to be an exuberant, seamless blend of these two complex culinary influences while maintaining an openness toward new flavors and ingredients. The result of this careful innovation is French bistro favorites with a twist, like grilled salmon placed tenderly atop creamy risotto, or herb oven-roasted Cornish hen (wax beans, pearl onions, bacon, tomatoes, herb au jus) as entrees, and tantalizing hor 'd oeuvres like mussels mariniere (shallots, white wine, butter, fine herbs). Add in that soft, cutesie feel you always get out of French spots, and you know the romance and the food will be on-point.
Lucey's Lounge is one of those places that doesn’t look like much, but charms you anyway with its warmth and down to earthness—not to mention seasonal cocktails and complimentary popcorn. After that decadent meal, it’s where you and your person will want to head for drinks spiced with the likes of fresh lavender, spriggy mint, and fragrant nutmeg, plus a mellow, well-decorated atmosphere to kick back in. The service is great and the drinks are high-quality—the mixologists know what they’re doing, and the owner’s around to make sure you enjoy yourselves, so it’s no doubt you’ll have a great nightcap.
