The Low Down
What to Drink: The list of wines by the glass is short, and the $12 pinot grigio is a good bet. Know that the bartenders are deft with classic cocktails and mix a mean but pricey martini ($17 for top-shelf).
Know Before You Go: The Cafe at Le Cirque, opposite the main dining room, serves a different, less expensive menu, including a $23 lunch box. Neither jackets nor reservations are required.
Parking: The restaurant's location in the Bloomberg Building means it's unusually car-friendly. The parking garage across the street is $20; but pull your car into the courtyard, and Le Cirque's valet will park your car for $35.
