If you had a French grandmother and she opened her own place, it would probably look a lot like Le Garage, a new bistro-meets-Bushwick at 159 Central Avenue.
One of the most anticipated openings this fall, Le Garage opened on Saturday to a swell of diners looking for a taste of French home cooking. Once you approach the restaurant on the corner of Suydam and Central (and neighbor to Maite), it’s pretty clear why it merits the buzz. Occupying a former garage space, the new fine dining destination looks nothing like its past life. A sunny yellow exterior gives way to an elegant and simple interior complete with a skylight, long bar and open kitchen. The intimate space would not be out of place on a little side street in Paris. Linger over a glass of Rosé and good conversation, and you might just end up spending several hours here.
