For some twenty years, Lucien has been the go-to French Bistro for those in the know. With an intimate and charming interior and a Gallic menu that is pure of heart, it draws patrons from all over—celebrities like Steve Buscemi are regulars, as are couples from as far away as New Jersey. If you like French food, there are few places as relaxing. (14 1st Ave., at 1st St. 212-260-6481.)
