Canaille Bistro Closed Until Next Week for Renovations

One of the neighborhood's hidden gems, Bistro Canaille, the tiny French restaurant on Fifth Avenue between St. Marks and Prospect, has been closed since last week as the space is renovated, and a sign in the door says that the restaurant won't open again until some time next week. 

The five year old restaurant, owned by Philippe de Crespi and Marie MacLean (who run the restaurant nightly and add to its homey vibe), is much-loved by locals but has remained largely off the radar of the city at large. Neither their website nor Facebook page make any mention of the closure, so we'll just have to wait and see what changes are made; so far it's gotten a paint job.

My absolute favorite place in the neighborhood. Can't wait for them to reopen!

Wonderful food (best moules/frites in New York City), great wine and always a delightful experience. When we take friends to Canaille, they love it. Hope to see Philippe and Marie soon.
