   "The granddaddy of the Meatpacking District", this "hip", low-budget late-night French bistro/diner is "still going strong" despite all the "new places" in the area it "pioneered"; its "delicious comfort food" draws a mix of "artists", "models" "drag queens", "club types" and, in recent times, "suits."
