Schiller’s Liquor Bar

Cuisine:French. Price: $$. Location: .

Schiller’s is a brasserie gem in the heart of the Lower East Side started by restaurant powerhouse Keith McNally. Between the tiled floors, charming liquor bar, and scribbled-on-mirrors (that evoke a very Parisian feel), we can’t get to this place enough. It may seem odd to you that you can get a table easily via Opentable, but don’t fret: It will still be extremely busy and lively. You’ll probably have to wait even when you have a reservation.  The steak frites and garlic shrimp are our favorite. Make a Reservation.
