Maybe it’s the long name, or maybe it’s the fact that it’s all the way at the southern end of the Lower East Side, but Les Enfants de Boheme doesn’t seem to get too busy. So if you live in the neighborhood or ever find yourself looking for dinner on the Lower East Side, it’s a good place to know about. The food here is French-bistro-type stuff like mussels, steak, cheese, and salad - and it’s just slightly pricier than what you want to spend on, say, a Monday night. If you need a last-minute place to bring a date or eat with some friends on a Friday or Saturday, however, Les Enfants is a great option.
