A true taste of France in the heart of Morningside/Piedmont Heights, Atmosphere Bistro is our cozy and cool spot for seasonal dining. The inviting ambiance, the ingredient driven menu, and the friendly staff create the perfect storm for a memorable and authentic French dining experience. From French favorites like crepes and escargot, to more outside of the box dishes such as pig’s feet and duck in different preparations, Atmosphere truly has it all. With an intimate interior and al fresco dining available, this mouth-watering Midtown restaurant is our go-to bistro for date night, family night, and weeknights alike.
Carpaccio de beouf
One of Atmosphere’s signature dishes, the thinly sliced and perfectly seasoned Wagyu beef Carpaccio is a can’t-miss starter to a truly unforgettable dining experience. So much more than your average Carpaccio plate, Atmosphere’s paper-thin cuts of high quality meat are drizzled with organic olive oil, topped with freshly grated Parmesan cheese, and served with lemon and arugula for a perfect flavor combination. No better way to start your meal off on a high note!
Dos de Saumon aux artichauts
A staple on Atmosphere’s indulgent menu, their pan roasted salmon filets is one of our absolute favorites. Served atop a bed of tender artichokes, arugula, Nicoise olives, marinated tomatoes, potatoes, and all dressed with a creamy and fresh red bell pepper sauce. Much of French cuisine can tighten the belt straps a bit, but this fresh and healthy dish has us not only coming back for more, but feeling good about our choices as well.
Plateau de Charcuterie
Few things go better with a large glass of French wine than a homemade, artisanal, and perfectly crafted charcuterie plate. Atmosphere’s take on the plate is no exception. Chalk full of epicurean meats, saucisson, and homemade pork rilletes, this starter is the perfect prep for your tastebud’s tour of France. Our professional opinion? Grab a plate or two for the table, open a couple of bottles of the good stuff, and enjoy Atmosphere’s wonderful patio for a date night to remember!
