Cafe Du PontCuisine: French Continental
Avg. Check: $35 - $40
Attire: Casual Neat

Cafe du Pont, an intimate cafe in Midtown East's tony Sutton Place neighborhood, serves upscale French continental cuisine in a casual setting. Over the past 11 years owners George Bodziony and Robert Wierzbinski have created a friendly atmosphere where guests dine expecting to see old friends sitting next to them. The mustard-colored walls with red trim, ceiling fans, and fresh flowers at every table evoke the spirit of a Parisian dining experience. The bay window with curved glass and impressive curtains provides an elegant shield between the quiet dining room and the bustle of First Avenue. Each evening the staff creates a romantic atmosphere of candle-light with quiet jazz and sensuous aromas in the background.

Executive Chef Johnny Espeland honed his skills at the world-famous Chanticleer in Nantucket under the chef-proprietor Jean-Charles Berruet. Johnny is a chef dedicated to the classics. His Beef Wellington, filet mignon with a foie gras and mushroom duxelle in puff pastry with sauce bercy rouge, is a traditional masterpiece. The whole roasted Maine Lobster, infused with a champagne and saffron buerre blanc and served with a wild mushroom risotto, is worth traveling cross-town for. The Apple Cider Chicken with Figs, sautéed chicken breast with a caramelized apple and fig calvados cider compote over brie mashed potatoes, has become the restaurant's
signature dish.

The eclectic wine list features over 100 wines from the United States, France, and other corners of the globe. Scotch aficionados have praised the collection of single-malts.

Cafe du Pont offers a relaxed, first-rate meal in a charming French-country setting.
