Paradou

Welcome to Paradou, a little bit of Provençal paradise in the heart of Manhattan’s Meatpacking District. Behind the sky-blue doors of a 19th century carriage house, is a restaurant that will transport you to your own quiet, romantic corner of the South of France. High ceilings and white-washed brick walls, bar and tables constructed of vintage French wine crates are the backdrop for a highly acclaimed list featuring more than 40 French wines, matched by an equally extensive and innovative seasonal menu overseen by Paul Bocuse & Daniel Boulud alum, Executive Chef, Kfir Ben Ari. As warm, welcoming and inviting as Paradou is, it is OUR HIDDEN, YEAR-ROUND GARDEN that makes it a true refuge in NYC. Possessing one of the most unique outdoor, all-season spaces, Paradou offers a wonderful setting for gatherings, whether an intimate dinner for two or large parties up to 100, in a private corner of idyllic Provençe in the heart of New York.

"We arrived at Paradou for our 11am booking and the restaurant was just opening up and the staff were not ready for us. They were not too friendly and welcoming , I felt like we had intruded in their space. We were the only table seated for about 20 minutes and had to ask 3 times for a pot of hot water for our tea. The food was fine, I enjoyed the tuna salad. We were not offered refills for our coffee, perhaps this was not included. Ambience was nice when more diners arrived. Pricey for the food we ordered."

"Great service here, really fun atmosphere and staff immediately put you at ease. Unlimited champagne cocktails were both delicious and deadly! Food was fabulous, I had the streak which was cooked to perfection and my partner had the duck which was also delicious. We would highly recommend for a fun brunch!"

"Paradou was a great disappointment. Booked for late morning January 1st brunch, and couldn't wait to leave. The main room in the back is clearly oriented for younger crowd looking for some quick drinking. Very noisy and loud music. Tables are cramped, to the point that staffed told us to seat straight at the table so everyone can fit. Staff, with one exception, was absurdly impolite and with such improper attitude that I can only understand by they being used to mistreat younger crowds. Food was underwhelming. By contrast, the very small room in the front looked as a completely different restaurant. Calm and cosy, even with different music. But we only realized it on the way out..."

"I have now gone for brunch and dinner and love this place. The garden is quaint.
Just go for brunch or early dinner. The neighborhood - Meatpacking - turns into club land after the dinner hour. Nothing to do with the restaurant itself, just not a fun exit from a wonderful dinner."

"I knew Paradou as a really good brunch place and wanted to check it out for dinner. Unfortunately the sliders were too dry, pasta was overcooked and lacking spices. Apart from the food experience, we were told that we can't move our reservation to 9pm and were rushing to the place to be on time at 8:30 - but half of the tables were empty also at 9pm."

"Our group of six enjoyed brunch at Paradou but we had to fight hard to hear one another speak as we vyed not only with throbbing background music but with several extremely large and noisy parties, two of which eventually combined (which says it all). The neighboring conversations were frequently at the level of a scream and one individual began dancing half-way through brunch!
The garden is pretty and was comfortable on a hot day, the service pleasant (though not speedy), and the menu varied and good but one definitely needs to be up for the action!

"The semi-enclosed garden / atrium creates a quiet, outdoor environment with A/C. Service was great, never rushed - we sat for 4 hours talking, eating and enjoying some rose and champagne. Have been before and will definitely be back again soon."

"Went here with 3 friends for a Memorial Day brunch and had a blast! The servers were quick to refill our carafes, gave us suggestions on their food (our server recommended the duck reuben, which tasted great!), and the place had a great energy the entire time we were there."

"I had seen Paradou listed as one of the top places in the Meatpacking district + West Village to have brunch. It's known for its back garden and despite being entirely enclosed, it had no plants. The decor was tacky and the music was ridiculous and loud. Our waiter got half of our order wrong. My husband and I ate at entirely different times. The drinks, for which they have a special, tasted cheap and watered down. The crowd was tacky as well. If weekend brunch is something you look forward to, definitely skip this place. Terrible across the board."

"All I could remember is how loud it was...I was shouting so I could hear myself. Overall food was very good, but i was disappointed in their cocktails. I've had much better Bellini and Champagne with mango juice at other places. Not sure if I would go back"
