La Mirabelle — 102 West 86th Street

Annick and Emmanuel LeDouaron, originally from Brittany, France, opened La Mirabelle, named for a French plum, in 1984. Their daughter, Nathalie, now runs the restaurant with her husband, Loic Cadou. Everyone connected to the restaurant is a part of the family, from the coat check girl to Chef Andre, who has been cooking at La Mirabelle for over thirty years. There are delicious dishes on the menu that have been there since the beginning.
