What do you get when two French friends with impeccable food credentials get together to create fast-food? L’Ami Pierre of course. The friends are and chef and culinary adviser, Eric Ripert, whose restaurant Le Bernardin is just steps away on West 51st Street, and Pierre-Antoine Raberin, who can be found doting over customers. Together they are offering a collection of French pastries, sandwiches, soups and salads for breakfast or lunch fare to eat in or take out. And of course, the croissants are fabulous!

The space is quite inviting with arched alcoves, red banquette seating and well-spaced tables inside and outside, perfect for a bite and conversation.
L’ami Pierre is located at 149 West 51st St, New York, NY
