About Us

Experience the difference

Excuse My French is a little gem in the heart of the Lower East Side, over one of the most iconic streets of the “old” New York and parked across the street of the Tenement Museum. You will discover this small slip down the basement gastro pub that feels like a speakeasy but is so much more! Step inside; enjoy our cozy 1920’s French look, with an eclectic artsy décor.

Attention to detail

French tapas style menu

We put equal detail and attention into food, service and atmosphere. Excuse My French will leave you wanting for more. French-born chef Johann Giraud created a French tapas style menu that ranges from a classic cheese platter that includes our French baguette to tasty beef sliders with his "grandma" sauce; great vegetarian options as well like his sauteed Brussels Sprouts with.
To encompass all: Mexico City-born, owner and operator, Ricardo Valdez beautifully designed the interior to re-create a cozy 1920's French look, with an eclectic artsy deco that will transport you to another era. He, along with his husband, curated the cocktail program that utilizes fresh ingredients, unique liquors and classic combinations
