Relative newcomer Jeanne & Gaston, which opened on West 14th Street just over a year ago and serves irony-free snails in garlic butter with Pernod and herbs (not to mention other French classics), has just added pétanque, the traditional and weirdly addictive bocce-esque game traditionally taken up by older but sly French people in the afternoons. Players of all ages open to the challenge are invited to the West Village restaurant's back garden daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., where they can also enjoy a Camembert-topped burger or the Cochonnet, a cocktail made with Ricard, pineapple juice, and Malibu.
