The Paris Cafe
Posted by Chimebo on 09/16/2006
Paris cafe has a solid menu and is good pub food. Service is always friendly when I go. Since the fish market moved about a year ago the South Street Sea Port no longer has that fishy smell, people used to complain about.

This place is right by the fish market so on a windy day the smell is overwhelming! I have been twice and both times the food is very plain and not at all worth the price. It's very expensive for what is pretty much chain resturant fare - lots of fried food and limp salads! This place seems to be a tourist trap...or just a hang out for bankers from the financial district to drink after work.

I picked this restaurant because of reading the reviews, We were amazed at how good the food was! I had the maryland crabcake sandwich, AMAZING! and my cousin had the fish and chips, best i've ever had! This is definitely off the beaten track so more locals, and very reasonably priced. I would go back a hundred times!

This place really looks like a hole in the wall from the outside. I had read about in on menupages.com and wanted to try a nice restaurant down at South Street Seaport. We found the place and was a little hesitant by the looks but we went in and had a very nice dinner with great service. I had the shrimp and they were very large and tasty. Their burgers were very good as well if you're in the mood for a burger. Very nice atmosphere...i'd like to go back on my next trip to my favorite city of all, NYC.

A great little place to find, a highlight of our trip to NY. A bit tricky to find, as you have to walk through the fish wholesale market, but having done so, I would highly recommend the fish dishes as they have a freshness that you would expect from such a location. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly (the servers are very welcoming). My partner said that she would feel comfortable sitting at the big square bar, which is saying something! The food is really very good. The choice is quite wide and there is a nice, relaxed pace to the service with an excellent choice of draft and bottled beers, which certainly went down well! I will certainly make the effort to come and find this place whenever I'm back in NY.

We have been going toThe Paris Cafe for years. My favorite is the salmon salad. We have also had the crab cakes and other entrees. The atmosphere is pubby and the food is good. Ryan Maguire's food is better but their kitchen closes by 10PM. It is tough to find a restaurant in this neighborhood with a kitchen open as late as The Paris (2 AM)! When you want to eat after midnight, the Paris is the only option in the neighborhood. Zaitzeff closes at midnight. Friendly service, you always feel relaxed and at home in The Paris. Great before or after a show at The Shooting Star Theater (right next door) and fabulous views of the Brooklyn Bridge. They also have a value priced brunch.

Windows wrap the brick walls and 100 ft antique wood horse-shoe shaped bar to peak out at the Brooklyn Bridge and East river. Accommodates a quiet brunch or dinner in the back dining room and clearly exceeds anyone's recollection of that warmth from the "Cheers" environment. Canvassing the menu alone is mouth watering and when coupled with several large DTV screens - I've found it a comfortable 'spot' to host impromptu reunions. Steps from the South Street Seaport but definitely not to be considered a tourist trap. PS - established in the 19th century.
