I have never had a bad experience at Pastis. The French staple of the meatpacking district always does a good job. Its hard to screw up French food when you have so many customers. I had to wait for brunch to start in order to order this food. It was kind of a pain in the ass, all the same it was worth the wait. I came at 11:30 after class and ordered by 12:00. Not to bad... My waiter was a character and made the meal much better. I ordered creamy tomato soup and this croque madame. I don't like the croque monsieur as much because you don't get an egg! The women always get the better deals.
It was so tasty I almost forgot to take a picture. I was also extremely hungry.
