It began back in the '80s as a social experiment, created by two artists to see how people reacted when seated together at community tables. What they discovered was that people flocked to their little café for the camaraderie that comes from close quarters. Today, G&M/Fast and French is a rarity among French restaurants with its simple and inexpensive meals. You'll find escargot on the menu, but you won't see any duck a l'orange. Like a fancier version of a diner counter, long rows of tables fill the narrow space, and patrons are seated on stools. The menu isn't very complex; breakfast includes plenty of croissants, lunch features sandwiches and salads, and dinner has a few entrées. Their variation on a hot dog sees the meat butterflied, covered in melted cheese and dijon, and served on a baguette. Go on a Thursday: It's fondue night, and they've got four different kinds (and that's not including the chocolate one). Keep an eye on their Facebook and Tumblr pages for daily special updates. —Susan Cohen, Dish (Summer 2012)
