Little Paris: If any neighborhood in Manhattan deserves the label Little Paris, it would be the Lower East Side. My absolute favorite, just based on personal history, is Cafe Charbon, the proper name being Epicerie and Cafe Charbon, where the bubbly, laid-back waiters are chill enough to let you practice your bad French and the dining room is a throw-back to a quaint grocery, and the dark bar, with its palm trees, makes you feel like you're in Casablanca or someplace a 25-year old Ernest Hemingway used to drink.
