Dining After Dark


   After 16 years, Florent is still going strong. Open 24/7, this meat-packing district mainstay serves up inexpensive yet filling bistro favorites like bacon and eggs, steak frites, steamed Prince Edward Island mussels, and the cheese and chocolate fondue- a perennial fav. Or try Evelyn's goat cheese salad, made with mixed greens, walnuts, potatoes and topped with Evelyn's top secret dressing! When only something sweet will do, order the chocolate truffle cake with whipped cream.
