French Roast is a great continental-style bistro on the Upper West Side. They are open 24-hours and have charming decor (note the pressed-tin ceilings). They have serve breakfast, lunch, weekend brunch, dinner and over-night menus. They also have a full bar, and great coffee/ espresso. This place is a particularly popular spot to end up after an evening of bar hopping. The lunches are also quite good, and reasonable priced. Dinner prices range from $12-30 for entrées. The french onion soup is excellent, as are desserts. In nice weather there is also outdoor cafe seating which is perfect for people watching. You'll enjoy being a part of the eclectic crowd that eats at the French Roast.
