Autour du Monde opens in Clinton Hill

What a great addition to the neighborhood--we had a variety of entrees, including the cod croquettes and fish soup (which our foodie friends proclaimed as good as their favorite Parisian bistro), hangar steak (the best prep I've had in NYC--with a bit of mole in the sauce, very tender), excellent salmon with chimichurri? sauce. The place just got a wine/liquor license, but we didn't know and brought our own wine (corkage $10). I was reminded of the Good Fork (in Red Hook), given the well-blended diversity of the menu and the terrific prep of each AND the fact that the owner(s) ARE there. And, how reasonably priced too!!

Was there last wknd--food good+, and ambience TERRIBLY noisy. Why did this place get a Michelin * for 2008?

Going to Copenhagen, any suggestions?

We went to Ida Davidsen last week, mid-afternoon. Though we had no reservations, we got in after calling for possible availability (place was fully booked online). Phenomenal food--ordered from the counter what was on display. Kind of like Danish sushi for me... Terrific friendly service!!
