Excuse My French
Authentic French Cuisine

excuse my french
Excuse My French is a little gem in the heart of the Lower East Side, over one of the most iconic streets of the “old” New York and located across the street from the Tenement Museum. This small and cozy basement gastro pub is tucked away like a speakeasy but offers so much more.

Step inside; enjoy the cozy 1920’s French look, with eclectic and artsy décor. Equal detail and attention is put into food, service, and atmosphere. Excuse My French will certainly leave you wanting more.

Duck Confit

Paris-born chef Johann Giraud created a French tapas style menu that ranges from a classic cheese platter that includes French baguettes to tasty beef sliders with his “grand-ma” sauce, with great vegetarian options as well like his sautéed brussels sprouts with almonds, cranberries and balsamic, a sure favorite amongst guests. The cocktails are a tribute to the first half of the 20th century rescuing old French liquors and aperitifs that pair perfectly well with the tapas. This is the kind of gastropub you want in your neighborhood!
