"In fact the only thing we did not like about
Capsouto Freres is that we had to leave!
But we certainly will be back."

Tuesday is BYO at Capsouto Freres.
“The 30-something-year-old TriBeCa bistro…"
Wall Street Journal, September 7, 2012
…Jacques Capsouto is also an enthusiast of Israeli wines.

From the moment I hit my seat, our every need was catered to. I didn’t feel like I was in NYC, the ambiance and service made me feel like I was taking part in a beautiful French movie scene as I sipped….
Ask Jacques Capsouto how long he and his brothers have been in the 5,000-square-foot restaurant space in the most distinctive building in northwest Tribeca, and his answer will make you grab some French Burgundy and order escargot. You will be there a while.

For a special and authentic tableside souffle experience that few can find outside of France,
Contributing Editor Liza de Guia of Chow.com shows us an elegant spot in TriBeCa devoted to just that.
Jacques Capsouto chose to plant a vineyard in Peki’in in the Galilee – “In the coming decade, the world will learn to appreciate the Israeli wines”
In the grand, high-ceilinged dining room, hung with many chandeliers and ceiling fans, the scene is the very picture of customer loyalty.
In the grand, high-ceilinged dining room, hung with many chandeliers and ceiling fans, the scene is the very picture of customer loyalty. Most of the diners have been here many times before.
This French bistro, originally run by the three Capsouto brothers, has seen dramatic change in the neighborhood, the economy, and the city itself, but remains a classic New York institution.
The brothers Capsouto can be proud of such longevity in their chosen business after three decades, and I think TriBeCa would be the less without this fine and lovable restaurant in its midst.
Capsouto Frères has been praised for its selection and pairings, dubbed “an ambassador of Israeli wines” by The New York Sun, and won the prestigious Best of the Best Beaujolais Bistro award from Sopexa USA in June of 2009.
French bistro Capsouto Frères will celebrate its 28th anniversary on Thursday, but little has changed there since Jacques, Samuel, and Albert Capsouto opened their restaurant in a converted Tribeca warehouse.
It is Mr. Capsouto’s collection of Israeli wines that has caught the attention of critics and imbibers. His 150-bottle selection includes 20 wines from Israel, such as a Yarden Brut Blanc De Blanc sparkler and a Yarden muscat sweet wine, as well as a Dalton sauvignon blanc and Yarden Merlot.
From the look on his face when he sticks his nose into a glass of wine and inhales deeply, one could easily think Jacques Capsouto was a trained sommelier. The thick French accent and moustache also help.
Trés romantique French cuisine to woo your lady in style. Open for three decades now and still going strong. Airy space with crisp white tablecloths, glowing candles.
