    Ah, a 24H French cafe -- the epitome of NYC living. The graveyard menu that they serve after midnight is where it's at. The onion soup and steak tartare are bomb. Great drink selection as well.

    One of the best cafes in the city all around. Lattes and the paper by day, wine and steak tartare by night, with Croque Monsieurs in the middle. Try to get a table in the nook at this 24-hr gem.

    The grilled octopus was expertly cooked. The Merguez was amazingly tasty. My steak came in big and thick, and perfectly pink in the center. The Avion tequila shots were generously and smooth as silk.

    I've been coming here 24/7 for yrs! Great for the hip vibe & people, late night snack, dessert or drinks. Love frites w/ side of peppercorn sauce & vanilla creme brûlée w/ a side of raspberry purée!

    Open 24/7 with a focus on food from Lyon, France. The grilled octopus appetizer is delicious. Roasted pork and herb sausage, steak au poivre, burgers and skirt frites are all good.

    All the tips point to the Lamb Burger for a reason -- it's really f'ing good!

    Love this place. A staple for many years. Their mussels are delicious and so is their roasted chicken.

    L'Express is the bomb!!! Had egg bennies (deliciosooo) and berry pancakes yesterday. Pancakes were not great at all! soup l'oignon, mushroom ravioli and steak au p'ouivre are one of the best in town!

    They make their martinis with fresh grapefruit juice - Kettle with a splash of fresh grapefruit juice is quite delicious. Their mushroom ravioli is exceptional - I have had it 10+ times lol.

    The appetizers are the highlight. The escargot and onion soup will mesmerize you. The steak and frites on the other hand were a lackluster experience. It tasted plain, on the same level as denny's.

    Great brunch. Omelette is hearty & fillings are plentiful. Honey Almond Tarte a la mode is also a must.

    If eating here late night I highly recommend the Escargots à la Bourguignonne (Snails in GarlicHerb Butter) - with the lamb burger (and goat cheese).

    honestly a lifesaver being open 24/7, saved me from sleeping on the streets and fed me snacks and coffee suitable for a 24/7 joint, highly recommended after 2am

    The food is great; the restrooms are not. For dessert, almond tart w/ honey is highly recommended! For food, I quite enjoyed the salmon w/ spinach and fries.

    It's Stinky Cheese Week 2016 and that means the Tour de France restaurant group is having specials all week long. L'express in Flatiron is serving a delicious cheese soup that will melt your heart. Read more

    This 24/7 French diner is a fun place to go if you need a bite late night. Burgers are always safe here and prices are semi-reasonable.

    Great value French cafe. Straightforward classic dishes. Lots of nice half bottles of wine if you're feeling 350ml.

    Whether it's breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, or 2 a.m...L'Express is open 24-hours! Residents of the building upstairs, 8 Gramercy, can get keys to the nearby private Gramercy Park.

    For late-nite dining, try the escargot, the steak tartare, the warm goat cheese salad, the lamb burger with goat cheese, or the salmon.

    L'Express offers a quick lunch for those on a tight schedule. Skip the Onion Gratinee, though, which comes doused in gruyere cheese.

    Large portions big enough to share. Make sure to get a seat by the full length windows in the summer for a breeze and people watching.

    I was expecting a little more overall. The food was fine the atmosphere was just Ok. A good place to go for a quick brunch if you're starving. Not going to blow you away but gets the job done.

    Croissant Sandwich. Sub Egg whites. Bacon on a side plate (for the homies). Sub fries for side salad. The perfect vice.

    The cafe au lait is fantastic, the chicken sandwich (believe it or not) is amazing, and the escargot is divine. Open 24 hours!

    The half roasted chicken is DELICIOUS. Mark my words. Substitute the fries for the mashed potatoes and you will be in heaven!

    Little cozy cafe in NoLiTa. A mix between french and arab (perhaps argelian). Good hummus. Not great though.
