4.5

A southern French restaurant at the Smyth hotel in TriBeCa.

Although it's located at the [node:172362] hotel, Plein Sud considers itself a neighborhood eatery. Looking at the clientele and how devoted they are to the gastronomic creations of chef Ed Cotton, I would say they are on point. The food is French, by way of Provence, and everything is really delicious.

Food and drink

French, with a focus on the south, so it's heavy on fish and herbs. The wine list is French-centric but very fairly priced. 

Recommended dishes

I am a big poisson cru fan and Plein Sud's doesn't disappoint. The French-Tahitian dish features raw hamachi and avocado. The poulet roti forestiere is one of the main course highlights and the stuffed chicken is hearty and filling without being too heavy. 

Ambience

This is a place you can take your date, your family, your parents or your friends. It's a free-for-all when it comes to the clientele. Locals of all ages frequent the restaurant. 

Service

Service is spot on. Your order is taken quickly and the waiting staff always offer a smile. 

Location

At the [node:172362] on West Broadway. It's the busiest part of usually quiet TriBeCa and close to the subway. 

Price advice

Dinner will set you back about $80 for two. Brunch is more affordable and the food is just as good, about $50 for two.
