Citysearch Editorial Review.
Ducroix is a small, simple French bistro, with a blackboard menu du jour of onion soup, coq au vin and lobster bisque and a charming Frenchman acting as maitre d, waiter, cashier and sometime cook. Though, thankfully, there's none of the faux-French charm found at so many bistros, it could do with a little gussying up--the chairs are straight out of a hole-in-the-wall Chinese joint and the walls are quite bare--but it's hard not to like a place that brings a hefty basket of crusty French bread to the table, fills your wine glass nearly to the brim and refills both without asking (or charging, at least on one visit). The menu is purely French Bistro classics: nicoise salad, steak frites, white wine mussels, etc. Most are around 10 bucks, a great value for the FiDi. Service could be quicker--much--but at least the restaurant's sense of timing is also authentically French.
