There are indeed tons of 24 hour restaurant and diners in NYC. But some are more popular than others, for their ability to collect the cool crowd once they’ve had too much to drink. The qualifications to become such a successful 24 hour place is to offer great food, at a reasonable price, but in a location close to all the fancy clubs and bars, and do it all while looking cool. This is one such a spot. L‘ Express, serves up great food till late into the night, and you don’t even have to be drunk to agree to that.
It claims to have brought both the northern and southern styles of French cooking, although I think you should consider it good ‘ol L’American fusion. It’s the perfect type of food you crave when you’ve spent your night burning off tons of calories dancing and sweating to the fantastic nightlife we have. Once you’re out of there, that hunger kicks in and L’Express is just the best place. It feels like the party isn’t completely over, but at least you can sit and eat while still feeling that energy and fun vibe. Can you imagine what is all around you, on PARK AVE?
It’s not about the decor, but it is about the crowd and the attitude, and L’Express has it all.
I would try the seared salmon, the Le burger, and the steak tartare frites…hmmm…hungry!
