La Sirene is making classic French cuisine with some flare and at an affordable price. I have been trying to experience French Cuisine around New York (check out my past reviews of Le Village and Le Perigord) and I was very excited to continue this exploration at La Sirene.

Inside La Sirene you’ll find a small bistro setting with cozy tables perfect for a date. La Sirene just got their full liquor license but their extensive and affordable French wine list is where the deal is at.

Getting Started at La Sirene

If you’re looking for a light start to the meal they have plenty of options. I loved the baby octopus sautéed with tomatoes, mushrooms, garlic and parsley, they were perfectly light and tender. But the standout dish of the entire night was the Roasted Escargot. The ½ dozen snails come in their own shell and cooked in a traditional garlic and butter sauce. However, the big difference was that these escargot were not overwhelmed by garlic but instead herby and buttery. We used all of the homemade bread to soak up any leftover sauce on the plate.

For my entrée I enjoyed the butter seared hanger steak with roasted garlic and parsley. My steak was perfectly cooked and had a beautiful seared crust on the outside. Didier, the chef and owner, ensured me that this dish was unique to the restaurant and you won’t find it anywhere else in NYC.

Another amazing entrée is their duck breast served in a savory and sweet cherry sauce. This sauce really made the dish, at first I was unsure about a cherry sauce but the tart cherries cut through the richness of a typical gravy and it was outstanding.

When you’re eating at La Sirene, know that it is not the night to skip on dessert. So make sure you save some room! From their classic and gigantic profiteroles to their strawberry tart there really is no wrong choice!

But I have to say, La Sirene has one dessert that really made me a happy girl. Their Choux Chantilly is the dessert I’ve been looking for my whole life. At La Sirene they take traditional pate a choux dough, what you make cream puffs and profiteroles with, and fill it with lots of sweet vanilla whipped cream. This dessert is so simple and so satisfying, the perfect end to a meal.

Better yet, La Sirene does an early bird dinner special Sunday-Thursday! Enjoy a three course dinner between 5-7pm for only $35 and let yourself explore some of the most delicious French cuisine!
