The Frederick’s midtown outpost has transformed itself (once again) into Jour Et Nuit, a modern French-American bistro. In hopes of resurrecting the defunct Soho Jour Et Nuit, owner Frederick Lesort has teamed up with twin brothers Derek and Daniel Koch to install the latest incarnation this subterranean space has seen. Having worked at Le Bilbouqet for numerous years, the Koch brothers have amassed a loyal and predominately European clientele they hope will follow them to their new venture.
Once a private supper club, Jour Et Nuit has a more democratic door policy and a decorative face lift. The space has been newly appointed with cherry wood floors, blue velvet banquettes and cream colored walls. There’s also a lengthy standing room only bar to lure the after-work banker crowd.
The menu features the French classics: croque monsieur, moules frites, steak tartare, and charcuterie. In an appeal to the masses, there’s also a club sandwich, macaroni & cheese, and burger. We’ll see if the bistro menu and French concept sticks at this forever evolving midtown space.
Address: 8 West 58th St., btwn. 5th & 6th Aves.
