Amadeus Broger has opened a sister restaurant to Noho gem Le Philosophe, bringing a similar selection of traditional French dishes to Bedford-Stuyvesant. It’s refreshing to have a restaurant that doesn’t try to dress up the classics: You’ll find foie gras with shallot chutney, frog legs in brandade, steak-frites, and crêpe Suzette on chef Frederic Robert’s menu — which doesn’t even have an English word on it. Beyond the food, L’Antagoniste’s wine list is turning heads: Broger has a $1,999 bottle of Bordeaux for sale. Take a look at a few of the dishes and the space:
