Bar Frites Review Manhasset, LI

Yet another Ultra French restaurant? Yes. The influence of Balthazar's success continues to ripple through the area.

The decor could be part of a kit- a Disney-like French restaurant. Every artifact, every touch point. Even the theek ac-SOUNT of zee 'ostess, Mai oui.

The French though, believe in food. Not menu items, food. At Bar Frites it is good, tasty. Not good enough though to make the drive from anywhere. If you are shopping at Wheatley Plaza, by all means, stop in to see the Long Island wives take a break from spending. But don't expect a meal to remember. It is just a high priced place to get stuff to address your hunger. Pity.
